Science errors & production cheats

By Starman

from Arlington, TN

About Me Avid Moviegoer

Pros

  • Thought Provoking Title

Cons

  • Glaring Science Errors
  • Logical Non Sequiturs

Best Uses

  • Adult Viewers

Comments about this product:

Bad, disgraceful science and production shortcuts in the first episode:
1) Animation shows the Moon moving in the wrong direction across the face of the Sun during a solar eclipse. In its orbital motion the Moon moves from right to left across the face of the Sun, not from left to right.
2) The narrative says the shadow of the Earth moves across the Moon during a lunar eclipse. It does not. The Moon moves into and through the shadow of the Earth.
3) A video sequence intended to show the Sun rising is actually a video of the Sun setting and played in reverse. In the northern hemisphere the Sun rises upward and toward the right (south) not upward and toward the left (north).

      Stephen Hawking was great! I do believe in God, but it is always interesting to hear another's view on how the world and universe were created.

              Comments about this product:

              At last. A logical explanation of the evolution of the universes. Steven Hawking's presentation is so easy to follow and makes such sense without all the religious doctrine. Great viewing.

              Comments about this product:

              I find this well worth the cost and well done, providing an excellent reframing of age-old human concerns as thought-provoking questions, ones that few dare ask in the age of political correctness and religious fanaticism. I shall give this to my son and daughter-in-law as a wedding present and quote Confucius, who wrote "Man should never lose his red, [innocent] child-like heart" (Never lose your sense of wonder) and ask them to learn these things, to enrich their journey through life together.
