The “Falling into a Black Hole” animations on this site were originally made for the finale of a “Black Holes & Relativity” show, one of the regular live Evening Star Shows at Fiske Planetarium. The show was first presented in January 1997, and proved to be of unprecedented popularity.
The “Black Holes & Relativity” planetarium show itself evolved from a show of the same name constructed, with the help of the Fiske staff, by the students of my APAS 1040 “Accelerated Introductory Astronomy 2” class in Spring 1996.
