The Universe: Our Solar System Blu-Ray Review

The Universe: Our Solar System Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Employing cutting-edge computer-generated imagery to bring distant planets and faraway stars up close, history and science collide in this ambitious investigation of the Universe.

THE UNIVERSE: OUR SOLAR SYSTEM takes viewers on an exhilarating voyage through the cosmos. Witness the sun's birth at the dawn of our solar system, and its death, billions of years in the future; explore the possibility of a human settlement on Mars; and learn about the devastating threats posed by the meteorites, comets, and asteroids that routinely collide with Earth.

From the farthest planets and stars in our solar system, back to the familiar face of our moon, HISTORY brings the mysteries of the heavens down to earth.

Review: The Universe series is one of the best out there.    Here, the History Channel does what they do best, making great and informative documentary television!  I learned SO much about the solar system that I didn't know before. 

The Universe series mixes historical footage and documentation with modern CGI graphics and theory.  Its without a doubt the most in-depth look at space that I've ever seen.  The high-definition graphics just blew me away!

This blu-ray would be ideal for anyone interested in space, but furthermore to homeschoolers and classrooms.
