Stephen Hawking hosts an epic new kind of cosmology series, a Planet Earth of the heavens. It takes the world's most famous scientific mind and sets it free, powered by the limitless possibilities of computer animation. Hawking gives us the ultimate guide to the universe, a ripping yarn based on real science, spanning the whole of space and time from the nature of the universe itself, to the chances of alien life, and the real possibility of time travel.
I greatly enjoyed this film, being the science nut I am. It really puts the universe in perspective and goes over the many theories that answer the big questions. Where did we come from? Where are we going? Can we travel through time? Are we alone?
Definetly worth watching if you are wondering what science has to say about the above questions.
nice narroration,depth into right areas 1:layman term visual of theoretical:origin,alien creatures;likelyhood of aliens&there likely reaction to us,where&why on WormHoles.2:timetravel thru WHs;timetravel paradox explained by a time traveller's going back to shoot himself minutes before he ever entered his sci-fi movie style wormhole,theory dismissing the latter man-made WH by comparing to rock concert speaker 'feedback' most've experienced;how time works.3:theory of everything;big bang;celestial engineering - told with beautiful colorful sci-fi creature,spaceship,wormhole theory,partical excelerator CG examples of colorful gases&stars often replayed,E1's intro early in E3,when he again calls us monkeys,describes organized processes that began the universe,then calling them random accidents,"cant build a world like ours from simple gases...need all sorts of other element...we got lucky...stars simply by accident are giant factories(producing gases needed)paradox?Good info.CHECK-IT-OUT!
