The Universe product reviews

From the mysteries of our own solar system to those that surround unexplored galaxies, history and science collide in this ambitious investigation of the Universe.

Questions about the Universe have consumed man since the dawn of time. In the 50 years since humans made their first tentative explorations of space, we have increased our knowledge of the cosmos dramatically, using powerful telescopes, robotic probes and manned missions.

But only recently has the technology allowed scientists to illustrate in stunning detail their awe-inspiring conclusions. This cutting-edge miniseries brings the Universe into your home for you to explore and wonder.

i have been a science buff for as far back as I can remember... and this is by far one of the best educational, entertaining series I have come across... which is not really surprising when you consider who made it and how big a budget was probably thrown at it. Wink Icon

The first episodes start off pretty basic and close to home, then the series expands outwards as it goes, passing out of our solar system and into the near-infinite reaches of observable space.

The animations are stunning, bring home the majesty of our sun, the planets in our solar system, and the sheer magnitude of the space we live in... and just how tiny and insignificant we are in the greater picture... at least, at this stage. Who knows what mankind could be capable of if we manage to get past this annoying destructive phase and move on with the loftier aspirations of our evolution.

Overall, a most stunning and mind-expanding series to have around the house or classroom. For those who have eager young minds to feed, this is "healthy brain food that's fun" - my 8 year old son was so impressed, he watched all four discs TWICE in a row. He did say he found some of it quite boring in places, but when I looked at those sections they dealt with matters a bit outside of his mental range, so it was quite understandable he got lost while it flew past over his head with a cool -whizzzz- noise.
