How The Universe Works: Season 2 DVD

SKU ID #478973
$29.93
Explaining how the universe works is a task of galactic proportions, but this 2-disc set takes it on. Delivering almost six hours of scientific exploration, the collection covers planets, weather, energy, magnetism, orbits, comets, and other elements that make up this space that we call home. Still, providing answers only sparks more questions: Will chaotic weather lead us to alien life? Is Earth really the only inhabitable planet out there? Is our world a target in the universe's magnetic minefield? These 8 episodes will help you to understand the intricacies of the wonders of our world, as well as what each can teach us about our own lives.

Includes:

  • Volcanoes
  • Megastorms
  • Planets From Hell
  • Megaflares
  • Extreme Orbits
  • Comets
  • Asteroids
  • Birth Of The Earth

        If you have an interest in the cosmos and our place in the universe, this is the video for you. Outstanding scientists with clear explanations of astronomical phenomenon. Clear descriptions by the narrator as well. Well suited to adult as well as younger audiences. The cinematography is outstanding.

            Comments about this product:

            This series explains our universe, as we now understand it, in layman's terms. There's not a lot of math or techno-jargon. If you liked Cosmos (the original and/or new series), or Through the Wormhole, then you'll enjoy this.

              Wanted to present these to my grandchildren for the educational value but refuse to expose them to such technological production abuse.
