PEEC News:

Journey into the never-ending world of fractals at 7 p.m. today in the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium.

This show takes viewers on an immersive tour of the fractals in nature and zooms through infinitely complex mathematical fractals. Featuring original music, this show is both educational and highly entertaining.

In addition to the fractals show, the nature center will show the full-dome film “Exploding Universe” at 2 p.m. Saturday. This movie explores a world where supernovas erupt, massive materials collide and protons give birth to life as we know it today.

Seating is limited for both of these events, so please call the nature center at 505.662.0460 or stop by to reserve tickets. Admission to both programs is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Events in the planetarium are not recommended for children under age 4.
