“Other Side of Infinity” worth seeing

If you haven’t seen the black hole laser show that is currently being shown Friday nights in the O. Wayne Rollins planetarium, you should definitely take one of the remaining opportunities to see it. Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity is free to students with a YHC ID.  The show lasts just under an hour, making it the perfect break from all that studying that YHC students do on Friday nights.

The show, which was created by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, is educational without being boring. The shows runs just under half an hour, and you learn about black holes without feeling like you’re being bored with useless information.

The graphics are also really amazing. They were created with high tech computers from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the show uses Einstein’s equations to show exactly what would happen if we were to approach a black hole. Anyone who appreciates great graphics would love this show.

The show is narrated by Liam Neeson. The voice of Neeson is great in the show, because he has a wonderful voice for narration. His voice blends nicely into the background sound effects, without being too obnoxious or too quiet.

My favorite part of the show was when the program gave audience members an idea of how black holes are formed. The graphics were amazing, and the visuals explained black holes in such an interesting way that I was able to understand a concept that I had never been able to understand before. Plus, the way the show puts great detail into exactly how the black holes are formed in outer space was really helpful.

Overall, I would give this show an A. Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity was completely wonderful all around, and the planetarium crew did a great job presenting it. It’s definitely worth seeing.
