Black Hole: a new interactive installation by EGO and INFN at Città della Scienza in Naples

Nov 23, 2022

Today, November 23rd 2022, as part of the Futuro Remoto science festival in Naples, the exhibition ‘Space (to the Future)’ will be inaugurated. The European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) was involved in the creation of an interactive installation on black holes along with the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics.

The exhibition, curated by Università degli Studi del Sannio, Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and Università degli Studi di Napoli L’Orientale, explores the multitude of topics related to space and space exploration, in the present and in its future prospects, from the Big Bang to black holes, passing through the frontiers of space exploration and the preservation of our planet.

In the interactive installation ‘Black Hole‘, visitors will discover what would happen if we could get close enough to a black hole to be sucked inside it. Approaching the event horizon and passing it, they will experience the thrill of falling into the black hole and being ‘spaghettified’ by its enormous gravitational pull.

An installation realised as part of the project DI BELLEZZA SI VIVE, selected by the social enterprise Con i Bambini as part of the Fondo per il contrasto della povertà educativa minorile (Fund for the fight against juvenile educational poverty), curated by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) with the contribution of Fondazione Horcynus Orca.

The exhibition can be visited free of charge, for more information:
