Black Hole Bash is a two-day extravaganza to celebrate the extreme gravity of black holes and how we investigate their intriguing nature. The event will run from 5-9 p.m. both days (October 3-4) with a hands-on exhibit, discussions with black hole experts, a special planetarium show, and stargazing (weather permitting). The party atmosphere will be complete with a cookout and music. General admission is $3.
