Always hated that tunnel.


I once watched a guy with two giant shopping bags tear through that tunnel intentionally hitting as many people as he could. I hate that tunnel, and as someone who worked in Times Square, avoided it almost entirely.

this is cool.

https://www.timeout.com/newyork/news/the-largest-planetarium-on-the-continent-opens-in-jersey-city-this-weekend-120817
New York City can be a tough place for astronomy aficionados, what with the high levels of light pollution keeping the coolest parts of the night sky out of view. Space nerds here have long relied on the Hayden Planetarium and its Rose Center for Earth and Space to get their interstellar fix. But this weekend, the 82-year-old institution is going to get some serious competition across the Hudson River.

On Saturday, December 9, the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City will debut its brand-new Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium and LSC Giant Dome Theater. The structure, which was formerly the IMAX theater, is now the largest planetarium in the western hemisphere and the fourth-largest on the planet (two in Japan and one in China are bigger). The state-of-the-art space has a screen with a resolution of 88 million pixels, a lighting system that can produce more than 281 trillion individual colors and an 89-foot full-dome view that provides a captivating simulation of the cosmos and other productions.

The planetarium will kick off with a whole host of psychedelic programming this weekend, including a laser show, an interactive exploration of the universe and the world premiere of Wonders of the Universe, a show that gives audiences a detailed tour of the Orion Nebula.

you probably missed it because it was supposed to be andy stott instead of him. stott had been booked for quite a while...must have dropped last minute.
