Wonders of the Universe Blu-ray

SKU ID #304273
$24.99
Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? These are among the most enduring and profound questions we can ask, and it is an essential part of human nature to want to find the answers.

We can trace our ancestry back hundreds of thousands of years to the dawn of humankind, but in reality our story extends much further back: it starts with the beginning of the universe.

Our universe began 13.7 billion years ago, and today it is filled with over 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of billions of stars and a breathtaking array of wonders.

In this groundbreaking new series, Professor Brian Cox tells the epic story of the universe and shows how its story is also our story.

      Comments about this product:

      Love watching this DVD because it makes you think on how we got here. Where are we going. How far can we go? Will we find another earth we can live and work. What happens if we have no sun. How everything is connected. What happens if one thing goes wrong. It all makes you wonder. I always need to know how things work. What we are. Really wish I could go out in space and see all that's out there. See how it all started.

        I love this series and I love Brian Cox. He is smart and engaging and easy to listen to. He loves the subject and it effervesces from him.

        On a side note. I should have ordered this on Am azon, I owuld have saved a bundle.
