September ASU Planetarium Shows
August 27, 2013
Angelo State University’s Global Immersion Center (GIC), formerly the Planetarium, will present two full-dome public astronomy shows each Thursday in September in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.
Each Thursday from Sept. 5-26, “Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity” will run at 7 p.m. and “Oasis in Space” will run at 8 p.m. All the shows are open to the public with admission prices of $3 for adults and $2 for children, active military and senior citizens. ASU students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
Sponsored by Concho Educators Federal Credit Union, “Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity” is a cutting-edge production featuring high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena. It works with data generated by computer simulations to bring the current science of black holes to the full-dome screen.
“Oasis in Space” transports the audience on a startling and beautiful voyage through our universe, galaxy and solar system in search of liquid water – a key ingredient for life on Earth. Viewers will visit each of the planets in the solar system through the GIC’s SciDome high-definition projection system.
