It’s been too long since I’ve been in a good planetarium, but this past weekend I saw the splendid “Dark Universe” show at the Hayden Planetarium (pictured) in New York. With dazzling graphics, a lapidary script by Timothy Ferris and narration by Neil deGrasse Tyson, the movie summed up in style the most important discoveries in cosmology over the past 100 years. If you’re visiting NYC, skip an afternoon of shopping and go to the Hayden. It’s worth the trip.
