Passport to the Universe breathtakingly reveals the wonders of our universe in a way never before possible in a planetarium. Narrated by two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, Passport to the Universe treats the audience to realistic close-up views of star fields and planets, taking them on an exhilarating flight through a virtual re-creation of our universe, into the Orion Nebula, out of our galaxy, and deep into intergalactic space. After reaching the edges of our known universe, the tour takes a "virtual shortcut" back to Earth - in a free fall, headlong through a black hole

This cutting-edge production features high-resolution visualizations of cosmic phenomena, working with data generated by computer simulations, to bring the current science of black holes to the dome screen. Black Holes uses the latest discoveries and observations to help us view the formation of the early universe, star birth and death, the collision of giant galaxies, and a simulated flight to the super massive black hole at the center of our own Milky Way Galaxy.
