Site History

The ``Falling into a Black Hole'' animations on this site were originally made for the finale of a ``Black Holes & Relativity'' show, one of the regular live Evening Star Shows at Fiske Planetarium.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.
