Fall into a Black Hole

Learn what it might feel like anyway

A special day focusing on black holes and that features games, crafts and activities that explore what a black hole is, how it forms and even what would happen if you fell into a black hole will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 26 Yale Peabody Museum, 170 Whitney Ave.

At 11 a.m., Betty Baisden will present the Roxi Fox puppet show Roxi’s Black Hole Blast-off, helping kids understand what we know about these powerful objects, according to a news release.

The exhibition "Black Holes: Space Warps & Time Twists," offers 13 interactive stations to further explore these mysterious objects, the release said.

Museum admission is $5 to $9.
