Explore the Edges of the Unknown.
From the mysteries of our own solar system to those that surround unexplored galazies, 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 computer technology allowed scientists to illustrate in stunning detail their awe-inspiring conculsions. The Universe, a groundbreaking series from The History Channel, employs cutting edge computer generated imagery to bring distant planets and faraway stars up close, allowing viewers to gaze at black holes and comets, and witness the births and deaths of galaxies and solar systems.

This epic miniseries takes viewers on an exhilarating boyage through the cosmos, and culminates with the feature length documentary Beyond the Big Bang. From the farthest reaches of distant galazies back to the familiar face of our moon, The Universe brings the mysteries of the heavens down to earth.

This four disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete Season One of The Universe!

"...for anyone who wants a handy astronomical reference/cheat sheet, The Universe deserves a place on your shelf...  Chris Chiarella, Big Picture Big Sound
"...a quality series. It strikes a balance between entertainment and education.  Christopher Long, DVD Town
"...does a great job inspiring one to grab a telescope and do some serious stargazing.  Jake Meaney, PopMatters
"...audience friendly and graphics heavy. The goal is to educate and entertain, and The Universe does both handily.  Tom Becker, DVD Verdict

Editor's Note
Reaching deep into the cosmos, this History Channel miniseries explores the many wonders of the solar system, the Milky Way, and the unknown galaxies that lay beyond our physical reach.

This complete first season collection includes every scintillating episode, as well as the feature-length documentary BEYOND THE BIG BANG.
