      Comments about this product:

      I enjoy watching astronomy and space exploration videos on the cable channels and that is where I saw Wonders of the Solar System first. I had already seen and then purchased Wonders of the Universe with Professor Cox. I really enjoy his almost poetic way of teaching about the wonders of space and his way of tying it to everyday life.

      I love to learn about my surroundings about outer space. I love the detailed science combined with the visual effects. Very informative. I simply did not like the guy who was presenting it in the dvd. In my opinion, buy How The Universe Works instead. I Highly recommend it!

          watch the series on TV. The imagery is awe inspiring and the host is a physicist but especially a great teacher that draws you into the wonderful places of the solar system. Brian Cox's style reminds me of the great Carl Sagan.
