Overview

Immerse yourself in more spectacular space exploration with Season 3 (2008-9) of this epic series from the History Channel A virtual collision of astronomy and history, each enlightening episode utilizes strikingly realistic computer recreations and animations to provide unprecedented insight into the mysteries of our universe, and beyond. See how NASA is arming itself with the latest technology to pre-empt an apocalyptic attack in "Deadly Comets and Meteors." Learn how scientists envision reproduction and human development in "Sex in Space," and explore startling new evidence showing the existence of universes other than our own in "Parallel Universes." From bizarre clouds to the hypothetical Planet X, from space disasters to space sex and the possibility of terrifying cosmic collisions, experience space in a whole new way -- not through a telescope or textbook, but firsthand. With The Universe, you'll feel like you've traveled to the edge of the unknown. All 12 episodes from Season 3 are included in this set, along with a featurette on "Universe Facts" and an image gallery.
