Overview

In this epic documentary series, The Universe takes you to the leading edge of our ever-expanding astronomical knowledge. A virtual collision of astronomy and history, these dense, enlightening episodes of unprecedented programming give unique insight -- through recreations and animations -- on the great "Eureka!" moments of celestial understanding and into the very latest discoveries. This insightful series gives serious, constructive consideration to the great human questions: Are we alone? Is Planet Earth as insignificant to the cosmos as a drop of water? Is there anywhere else out there that that can support life? Or, is there truly no place like home? In the second boundless season of The Universe, The History Channel takes you far beyond the comfort of our own solar system to discover the wonders of deep space. Venturing light-years from Earth, these programs guide you to the most fascinating phenomena and stunning events known to science. Experience the cosmos as no-one ever has -- not peering at dots through a telescope or scanning pages of numbers, but firsthand. Strikingly realistic computer reconstructions give you a front-row seat at the hottest events in The Universe, from colliding celestial bodies to collapsing suns, from distant, possibly viable planets to mysteries that defy explanation.

    An Excellent Documentary about the Universe and its misteries

    The Universe season 2, as well as season 1, is highly recommendable for all kind of audiences. The animation helps a lot to understand basic principles of astronomy and physics. Interviews to experts are well done. The only complain, applicable to the vast majority of the History Channels DVD, is that they don't have other languages subtitles or audio tracks.
