Watch Wonders Of The Universe
- 1 Season
Wonders of the Universe is a BBC produced science series that tackles unanswered questions regarding the fascinating and often interesting phenomena taking place in our universe. The show is narrated by renowned Royal Society University Research Fellow Dr. Brian Cox. The show tackles many questions ranging from the beginning of mankind to the present and beyond. The universe is infinite and largely unexplored, with literally zillions of other galaxies, stars and planets. Dr. Cox attempts to guide us through a series of scientific principles to give us a better understanding of who we are and where we come from. We as humans share life cycles similar to that of stars. The earth is made up of 92 elements, which proves that human life is intertwined with universal elements. Dr. Cox explores time and how it relates to humans and life on earth. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is the model to explore how time is affected, and the heat death of the universe, which physicist Lord Kelvin believes will be the demise of the universe. Dr. Cox also explores the origins of all life and the role of stellar evolution. Gravity is one of the most interesting forces within the universe. Dr. Cox shows how this weak occurrence produces and controls orbits. As seen, gravity controls and shapes our universe and actually plays a role over events billions of miles away. Dr. Cox explores the strange phenomena of the neutron star and how its relatively tiny size and dense gravity is almost a billion times greater than earth's. Dr. Cox also travels to a desert to explain the origins of light and how ancient fossils play a role. Although light rapidly travels to all points of the universe, we would still be in the dark if not for an important evolutionary event taking place.
