The Universe series on The History Channel

By January 28, 2008

Follow me on:

Recently having re-acquired cable television after a 3-year hiatus, one of the first thing that impresses me is the sheer amount of science-based programming available. Among these shows, one which has particularly captured my interest is the History Channel's The Universe. The show explores the wonders of astronomy & cosmology, and the advanced theoretical physics concepts inherent in the study of these phenomena.

Season 1 is available now on DVD and, as soon as my copy arrives, I plan to review the set.

Season 2 is currently in progress on the History Channel, with new episodes on Tuesdays at 9pm Eastern time. This Tuesday (Jan. 29) features a repeat of the "Alien Moons" episode at 8:00 pm followed by "Astrobiology" at 9:00 pm. For more information, check out The Universe website at History.com.

Hi,

I just rented the whole first season on DVD from my local video store. Very well done series. Lots of Familiar faces from the many other science lectures and series I’ve seen. Dr. Brian Greene, Mikio Kaku, Alex Philipenko, Carolyn Porkue…and many many more. Information is very current and I can’t wait till season two is available for rent. We don’t get the History channel way up here in northern Canada.

Take care..Allan
