Synopsis:
Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? These are among the most enduring and profound questions we can ask, and it is an essential part of human nature to want to find the answers. We can trace our ancestry back hundreds of thousands of years to the dawn of humankind, but in reality our story extends much further back: it starts with the beginning of the universe. Our universe began 13.7 billion years ago, and today it is filled with over 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of billions of stars, and a breathtaking array of wonders. In this groundbreaking new series Prof. B Cox tells the epic story of our universe and shows how its story is also our story.

Illuminating - Wonders of the Universe review by JD

Spoiler Alert
21/02/2013

A fascinating account of astrophysics filled with amazingly large numbers. The pace varies from slow computer graphics of artists impressions of colliding universes for example to some descriptions of universes that are difficult to digest. This episodic variation is soporific and I often found myself rewinding back to where I fell asleep. Very educational and humbling.
