A place so unimaginably vast and complex, it is almost inconceivable that it could ever be understood. But for thousands of years, humanity has tried to unlock its secrets. Wonders of the Universe explains the vast and unfathomable phenomena of deep space by re-examining the familiar on Earth. Taking science away from telescopes and labs, this mind-bending series travels into the natural world across the planet to reveal how light, gravity, time, matter and energy are the fundamental building blocks of everything, from the smallest microbe to the biggest solar system. Inspired by imagery captured from telescopes and using stunning high definition CGI, Wonders of the Universe offers views of giant supernova, gamma ray bursts and recently discovered galaxies, and sheds light on the furthest reaches of the universe, just moments after its creation. 2 DVD set.
