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.
