The Universe: the Mega Collection

Overview

A program regarded as perhaps the single most ambitious TV documentary series of its kind since Carlos Sagan's Cosmos, History Channel's The Universe sets out to explore virtually every known aspect of outer space and interstellar exploration, from ongoing extraterrestrial events that mirror the formation of the Earth itself, through the cataclysms of colliding celestial structures and dying suns.

Overview

A program regarded as perhaps the single most ambitious TV documentary series of its kind since Carlos Sagan's Cosmos, History Channel's The Universe sets out to explore virtually every known aspect of outer space and interstellar exploration, from ongoing extraterrestrial events that mirror the formation of the Earth itself, through the cataclysms of colliding celestial structures and dying suns. The series also charts the evolution of modern astronomy, with subtopics such as the historical transition from the crudest and most primitive telescopes through the advanced devices of the early 21st Century, such as Hubble. Shot in High Definition, the program makes frequent use of such elements as CGI graphics, NASA footage, and much more. The entire 5-season series appears in this box set, with all 64 episodes as they originally aired.
