Journey into the never-ending world of fractals in an amazing tour of science, math and art this Friday, Jan. 10 at the Los Alamos Nature Center. Peter Polko will show the award-winning, full-dome planetarium show “Fantastic Fractals” at 7 p.m.
This show takes viewers on a tour of the fractals in nature and zooms through infinitely complex mathematical fractions. Featuring original music, the show is both educational and highly entertaining and is appropriate for audiences ages 4 and up.
In addition to the fractals show, PEEC will play the full-dome film “Superpower Dogs” in the nature center’s planetarium at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11. Local sponsor Pet Pangaea LLC brought this exciting movie to Los Alamos. Join an immersive adventure that explores the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs. This inspiring true story is narrated by Chris Evans and follows six dogs that brave earthquakes and avalanches, protect endangered species and help people with special needs.

Admission to the fractals show is $10 for adults and $8 for children. “Superpower Dogs” is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Events in the planetarium are not recommended for children under age 4.
