Relics of the Big Bang
March 5th, 2012 by insideout
“Relics of the Big Bang” is a fantastic new planetarium show at Abrams Planetarium, at MSU. It leads viewers on a grand adventure: “a journey of exploration through the unknown mysteries of the universe.” Along the way, some of the most cutting edge work being done today by CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) is revealed: research that extends from Geneva, Switzerland to East Lansing, Michigan. The information is presented in a concise and clear way, so even people unfamiliar with this type of research should find it interesting. It may also boggle the mind.
Learn more about the Large Hadron Collider and the ATLAS detector. Explore Dark Matter and the Higgs Particle. It will rock your world.
You’ll want time to digest what you’ve seen. The best place to do that is over dinner at our Lansing area fine dining restaurant. See “Relics of the Big Bang” at 4:00 p.m. some Sunday, then head to The English Inn for dinner and a metaphysical discussion. Don’t worry, the food will help keep you grounded.
“Relics of the Big Bang” also shows at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. If you prefer to have your mind blown on a full stomach, have an early dinner at our Lansing restaurant and then see the show.
Please see Relics of the Big Bang for more information.
