Lourdes University's Appold Planetarium will bring back this spring NASA's Black Holes: From Here to Infinity.

Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actor Liam Neeson, this show brings the science of black holes to the dome screen. In distribution at more than 100 theaters worldwide, Black Holes is one of the most successful full-dome shows ever produced.

All shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays April 5, 19, and 26, and May 3 and 10.

Audiences experience the striking animations of the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies and a simulated flight to a supermassive black hole lurking at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.

For information or to purchase tickets, contact Laura Megeath, planetarium coordinator at 419-517-8897 or by email at planetarium@lourdes.edu.
