February 21st, 2013 by Wendy Hancock

What is a Black Hole?

Black Holes: Space Warps & Time Twists immerses visitors in the modern search for black holes—the most mysterious and powerful objects in the universe — through a variety of interactive and multimedia experiences.

Developed by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, this 2,500 square-foot exhibition consists of 13 interactive components that captivate audiences and increase their understanding of core ideas in physical science, including gravity and light, the tools and techniques of astronomers, and the nature of theory and evidence in science. Visitors are able to:

  • Collect and record their discoveries into a personal web journal
  • Take an immersive interactive journey to the giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy
  • Explore gravity and the effects of unseen forces
  • Collect and weigh evidence for black holes.

The exhibition is enriched by program materials and training for host museum educators and an informational website.
