Wonders Of The Universe Professor Brian Cox is back with another mind-blowing exploration of the cosmos. This time he shows us our universe as we've never seen it before. With the most profound and elegant scientific ideas at its heart Wonders Of The Universe reveals how the story of humanity is intimately entwined with the epic story of the universe. 13.7 billion years old 93 billion light years across more than 100 billion galaxies each containing hundreds of billions of stars.
This almost infinite vast and complex universe has been the subject of human fascination and scientific exploration for thousands of years. The wonders of the universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand but Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world around us to explain its simple truths.
Brian visits some of the most dramatic locations on the planet to explain the fundamental principles that underpin the laws of nature – light gravity matter and time. He shows us how the water of Victoria Falls in Zambia behaves exactly as light does around a black hole and how the same laws that govern our lives here on Earth apply across the entire universe.
Using 3D CGI imagery his expert knowledge and his infectious enthusiasm Professor Cox shows us that by understanding the laws that govern the universe we end up answering the deepest question about our own existence; who we are? Where do we come from? And what will happen to us? Wonders Of The Solar System Professor Brian Cox takes another giant leap for humankind as images of distant alien worlds are brought into breathtaking focus.

It's an epic journey of discovery where bizarre worlds become real places we can see feel and visit.
