Led Zeppelin

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — From Stairway to Heaven to black holes, June’s lineup offers a little of everything at the O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium at Young Harris College in June. 

“It was so popular the first time, we are offering a second chance for this one-of-a-kind concert experience,” said Lauren Albain, Planetarium director. “The Led Zeppelin Cosmic Concert transports the audience into a series of fantastic and surrealistic settings, set to the music of a legendary band. This show is always a favorite.” 

Friday, June 21 at 8 p.m.: Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity 

Deep in the middle of our Milky Way galaxy lies an object made famous by science fiction — a massive black hole. Scientists have long speculated about the existence of black holes. German astronomer Karl Schwarzschild theorized that black holes form when massive stars collapse. 

The resulting gravity from this collapse would be so strong that the matter would become more and more dense. The gravity would eventually become so strong that nothing, not even radiation moving at the speed of light, could escape. Schwarzschild’s theories were predicted by Einstein and then borne out mathematically in 1939 by American astrophysicists Robert Oppenheimer and Hartland Snyder. 

Friday, June 28 at 8 p.m.: Led Zepplin Cosmic Concert  

Back by popular demand, this full-dome video extravaganza is ready to rock the planetarium. This one-of-a-kind concert transports the audience into a series of fantastical and surrealistic settings, taking visitors on a captivating journey led by this legendary rock band. The motions are calculated to heighten the transportive feeling, drawing audiences deeper into the ever-changing landscape of sight and sound. The soundtrack includes Led Zeppelin classics such as “Kashmir,” “Black Dog,” “Over the Hills and Far Away,” “Stairway to Heaven” and “Rock and Roll.”
