|The unfathomable power of the universe explodes to life in and out-of-this-world set from The History Channel. Planets, stars, and galaxies are revealed in a whole new light: not as tiny dots in a telescope, but as if you were right there. Incredibly realistic computer reconstructions, sophisticated animations, and the most current scientific intelligence combine to show the hottest events in the sky, from colliding celestial bodies to collapsing suns.|
Closer to home, The Universe Collector's Set delves into how our own Earth developed from an inferno of molten rock to the beautiful orb that sustains us today. Experience firsthand the cataclysmic events that set the stage for life, and visit sites where Earth's birthing process is still in evidence. Relive astronomical triumphs, from the first crude lenses that were able to magnify celestial bodies to probes that blaze to the most distant planets. It's a journey of cosmic discovery, amazement, and adventure like nothing on Earth.
Join The History Channel on a stunning exploration of Earth, our solar system, and faraway galaxies on 14 DVDs.
Includes The Universe: The Complete Season One, The Universe: The Complete Season Two, The Planets, and How the Earth Was Made!
