Distortions in Spacetime

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

What would it feel like to step into a black hole? Prepare to be stretched, squashed and spaghettified as a spacetime singularity pops up in the 1830 Warehouse. Distortions in Spacetime is the latest sensory creation by cutting-edge audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast. Play among the particle jets and see the light as you journey through the depths of space and experience one of the biggest mysteries of the universe unravel all around you. It’s going to be out of this world.
