Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole will explore the deepest mysteries of existence – the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. This series brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science – ASTROPHYSICS, ASTROBIOLOGY, QUANTUM MECHANICS, STRING THEORY and more – to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe.

DISC 1

Is There a Creator?
Did our universe come into being by chance or was it created by a god? The latest science shows that the four forces governing our universe are finely tuned, so much so that it has led many to believe that something must have calibrated them.

The Riddle of the Black Holes
They are the most powerful objects in the universe. Astronomers now think there are billions of them, swallowing up planets and stars in violent feeding frenzies, and that reality may take place on a two-dimensional hologram at the edge of the universe.

Is Time Travel Possible?
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity says time travel is possible, if you’re going forward in time. But finding a w ay to travel backwards requires breaking the speed of light. Now strange-but-true phenomena such as quantum nonlocality may make this a reality.

What Happened Before the Beginning?
Cosmologists and astronomers agree: our universe is 13.7 billion years old. Using cutting-edge technology, scientists are now able to take a snapshot of the universe a mere heartbeat after its birth. But if the universe was born, where did it come from?

DISC 2

How Did We Get Here?
Everywhere we look on Earth, in the most hospitable of environments and in the most extreme, we find life. Yet we have only ever found life on our planet. How did the stuff of stars come together to create life as we know it? What do we mean by “life”?

Are We Alone?
Aliens almost certainly do exist. So why haven’t we met E.T. yet? We’re only just developing instruments powerful enough to scan for them. One leading astronomer believes she may already have heard a hint of their first efforts to communicate.

What Are We Really Made of?
Our understanding of the universe and reality has drastically changed over the last 100 years, and it’s on the verge of another seismic shift based on LHC findings. What we find could validate theories about how the world works and what we are made of.

Beyond the Darkness
What is the universe made of? If you answered stars, planets, gas and dust, you’re wrong. Today scientists think there must be five times as much dark matter as regular matter, but they have no idea what it is – only that it’s not made of atoms we know of.
