There are six seasons of "The Universe", and all are spectacular in their own right. Season one deals mostly with our Solar System, though it gives more than a passing nod to Galaxies and Stars, which it also covers in subsequent episodes later on. Our Sun is looked at more in depth. The Moon, its formation and its role where Earth is concerned is discussed as are the conditions of both the inner and outer planets. An episode, entitled "Most Dangerous Places" showcases exploding stars and Black holes," the Search for ET", described the search for other possible intelligences in the Universe, and focuses on the question of what caused the Big Bang. Earth is not left out either. From scenarios of possible destruction from Space to just how lucky we truly are that our planet is the way it is. Beautiful scenes illustrate just what scientists are talking about as the explain details in easy to follow terms and experiments, as it is easy to see that they want people to understand what is out there and their fascination with it.
