Yesterday we drove through a hailstorm, which gave way to sleet and then lightly falling snow, to a planetarium to watch “Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity,” a mind-bending program narrated by Liam Neeson.
One of the creators, Andrew J. S. Hamilton, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Colorado, has said about the program: “What if you could take people through a wormhole the way Einstein’s equations said it would be? And what if you could bring art and science together in a way that compromised neither?”
It was indeed an awe-inspiring — and giddy! — thrill ride. Yet we were glad when the lights went up and there we were, still in our seats, still in Spokane, still safe and sound on beautiful planet Earth.
