Explore the Edges of the Unknown.
As the Earth grapples with the effects of global warming, science has increasingly looked to outer space for answers to the glaring threats facing our world. Are there other planets in the Universe with the unique ability to support life -- or is there truly no place like home? The History Channel ventures into the uncharted territory of outer space through the visions, studies, and predictions of scientists and explorers, utilizing cutting-edge computer graphics and stunning footage to bring the universe down to Earth.

Now available on Blu-ray, The History Channel presents all 13 visually arresting, awe-inspiring episodes from The Universe: The Complete Season One plus the feature-length documentary Beyond the Big Bang. From the planets to the stars to the edge of the known universe, history and science collide in this epic exploration of space and its limitless potential.
