Journey to the Edge of the Universe
National Geographic presents the first accurate non-stop voyage from Earth to the edge of the Universe using a single, unbroken shot through the use of spectacular CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) technology.
Building on images taken from the Hubble telescope, Journey to the Edge of the Universe explores the science and history behind the distant celestial bodies in the solar system.
This spectacular, epic voyage across the cosmos, takes us from the Earth, past the Moon and our neighboring planets, out of our Solar System, to the nearest stars, nebulae and galaxies and beyond - right to the edge of the Universe itself.
When you finish this video, you will walk away from it with an awareness that you never had before, of the unseen astronomically massive universe that we float around on like a spec of dust in the ocean.
This video takes you on a journey through the universe as if you are watching a Sci Fi adventure. Yet you constantly have to remind yourself that what you're seeing is really out there.
I never seen such a wonderful documentary.
One of the best space documentary ever made.
The commentary in this documentary is amazing. Lovely doc
Realy watch this documentry
Just as amazing as this film is, the scope, depth and sincerity of the comments are just as amazing.
good video, although filled with assumptions and theories presented as fact (with a mix true science (testable/repeatable/viewable) ). In some parts is comical but overall an interesting perception of how it all began.
Very top class documentary or movie clip,had me glued to the seat.
Beautiful, just beautiful. Not enough words can describe the miracle that life is. From the infinite small to the infinite big. There is a whole universe in every cell of our body, just like we are part of a bigger cell, in a bigger entity. Suddenly you realize how all this mundane life we lead and all the wars and hate on our planet seem so useless and infinitely small in the bigger picture.
does anyone know where is can find the soundtrack that appears when the white dwarf is shown, i love that piece
Awesome. The mystery of creation, life, death and rebirth.
I found this after smoking weed one night by accident and it was one of the most amazing things I'd ever seen. It never lost my attention whatsoever. I've watched it five times in total (sober), I love it and show as many friends as I can.
You guys should watch "Through the Wormhole","The Universe" and Look up documentaries done by Stephen Hawking
This is probably the greatest documentaries I;ve ever seen though I can't watch it unless it's Sean Pertwee's narration
I love this documentary. Not for the science but the sense of adventure by being guided by Sean Pertwee (I preferred him to Awec Bawdwin) through a visually stunning universe. Anyone know of other docs like this one since now I pretty much know it off by heart?
A great documentary. Some minor grammer inconsistances, but definately one of the best around!
if this, if that. at least science makes more sense then what your bible says...which was written by man. you have no concept of big bang THEORY. there is no bible theory because you go by what your fellow man has written hundreds of years ago and take it as fact because like most zombie m*rons can't/don't think for your self. your asking dumb questions.... "Consider this when there is a huracane, or tornado, do these events make a car, or airplane from that event?" making an analogy with 6th grade concept doesn't help your point. If you want to make a point find someone who has at least average to above average intelligence then have them write it. Problem with you m*rons is you talk with your emotional intellect which you know is the dumb part of your brain....and if you don't know go find a book.
If the univere was created by a big bang. Then how do you explain planatery bodies going in oposite direction from one another, If the universe started with an explosion, one would expect that all matter-energy should have been propelled radially from the explosion center—consistent with the principle of angular momentum.But this does not occur! The Bible plainly teaches that the entire universe, including the earth with its various “kinds” of biological organisms, came into being during the six, literal days of the creation week (Genesis 1; Exodus 20:11). The big bang theory postulates eons of time. If the earth is actually millions of years old, you would have mountains of dinosour bones everwhere, you would have far more salt in the oceans. There is so much evidence to prove that we human beings did not evolve from rocks. Let alone from a big bang. Consider this when there is a huracane, or tornado, do these events make a car, or airplane from that event? Its sad how so many americans do not use there mind to think, research, useing critical thinking! I would sugest, reading the: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America.
Great Doc . i have seen it many times, but this is the first time i have heard the American naration.....OMG ..his he a zombie!!!!..flat no emotion , listen the the english naration....it will make your hairs stand on end. Sean Pertwee he brings this doc to life
Just spoke to Rick Scatatorium. He disagrees with this vid. He confided in me that the universe is 4,000 years old and the sun revolves around the Earth. That liberal Romney told me that the universe is 6,000 years old, and that the Earth revolves around him. Who should I believe?
hey guys just wanting to say something about the universe being infinite well technically no its not infinite but it is expanding, if im not mistaken, faster than the speed of light and the fastest we can go is 99% of the speed of light in theory, therefore we would never be able to reach the edge nothing can so technically wouldnt that be inifinite?
sorry if this post makes no sense im very stoned:)
Type something lamenting mankind here, something half-way pretentious trying to sound intelligent yet at the same time expressing personal hopes others will read it or even care.... Oh yeah and wasn’t Baldwin cheesy?!
Pretty good but mis-named. I think of the edge of the universe as the outer rim of the sphere or disc, not the Big Bang point. Nevertheless, a very good prime for children who have thoughts of what is out there and why.
It still doesn't answer the question of where the universe is expanding or where it is going, or in other words, what is outside of where the expansion point is now. Of course, nobody now can definitively that any better than what was before the Big Bang. The show was still worth watching.
Does anybody know why the Big Bang is not a sphere instead of a relatively flat disc as most science seems to conclude. Seems to me, it should be a sphere. Science says the universe is approximately 13.7 million years old. I thought that was based on looking back in time and through pulsars and other techniques recognizing how far everthing has traveled. However, if the universe is expanding as some science thinks, how do you really know the diameter of the universe? I look forward to someone enlightening me.
Also, if pi is an ever increaing smaller number by virtue of its endless digits, does that mean the circle or sphere is also an ever increasingly smaller area or volume. And, if so, does that mean the expansion of the universe is also overcoming this conumdrum over the vast period of time?
The speed of light being exact has also boggled my mind. I guess yo just accept it is what it is, that is, very interesting. Nevertheless, if you can't go any faster then the speed of light, the laws of science didn't intend for us to go very far. Doh.
I may be biased but I preferred this documentary with the British narration that was used when it screened in the U.K. Still an excellent programme (show) though.
This should be titled "Journey to the Edge of Time".
Didn't they really make a journey to the "center" of the universe???
Definately one for the stoners. Crank up the bong, turn out the lights and set it to full screen Scotty.
Just, made me Cry !!!
It will soon become known to all that god is actually extraterrestrials visiting this planet. Science is fact and always has been, and religion is slowly fading away. I was once a devout christian, but I finally opened my eyes and my mind to the truth.
They are here and have been here for thousands, perhaps millions of years. Religion has become nothing more than a tool, a method of brainwashing, another way to control and manipulate the population.
The universe is an inconceivably big place that we have just begun to explore.
Oh another thing the big BANG theory does have a lot of evidence to back it up, like the expansion of the universe and the anti matter(already created in vacuum). And well yes we all know God created everything and change his mind a lot over the last million years( or 6000 years).
A very good doc, I really enjoyed this one, not bad CGI.
the big band still remains a theory which science has often found contradictions to it.
Either way the big band was a scape goat theory to silence religion, while failing to answer how the universe begun...just pointed out a "segment" in universal history of infinity and said a "big bang occured here at this point...sometime during infinity".
The universe existed pre-big bang, the big bang only try's to explain how planets etc formed...there is no evidence to sugest they never existed previously.
the big bang...could purely represent 1 "small" event in the universe...like a tree sprouting within the jungle...the tree aint the universe, just apart of something bigger...which the big bang seems to try encompass creation in its entirety of the universe within its limited frame.
rather idiotic considering we have not explored perhaps even .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 % of the universe or it possible infinity...which the big bang just pails to live up to and ends up just being a grain of sand in our galaxy in comaprison.
Isn't it a strange thing the universe has a starting point ? the big bang? has anybody wondered why does it have a starting point? what's the point of a start? and WHAT triggered the start button?!!! Common sense tells me whatever has a starting point is a product/result of something else... it's just a simple cause and effect idea... Like... how long did that infinitely dense point of singularity WAIT in its own state before SOMETHING HAPPENED and triggered a CHANGE?!!! I know... the multiverse, parallel worlds, and so on, but that doesn't satisfy me:)
The only problem with this is that they explain the universe to be small and dense before the big bang, this is a common misconception most people have. The universe is infinite and has always been infinite, the big bang happened everywhere at the same time in a infinitely big universe. If it wasent infinite in the beginning what would it expand into? Just thought i would share that. Overall, this movie was amazing, I would just have that slight tweak.
Hum....if Kubrick was alive to do a remake of Space Odessey and the previous moon landing he would have the perfect shots or are those real? lol
Rewatch this: at minute 2:50 until minute 3:00 you can see the face of an old man just a bit up and right above the moon, it is as if he is talking.
Weird and alien! lolololol
Re-watched again, always a mind blowing doc!
Dear Vlatko, thnx again for all your huge efforts... Can we universe and cosmos freaks have a "separate category" in the docu listing? guess we all find it hard to sort out space related docs through science category...
BTW, dear Vlatko, I as a universe freak, have a lotta hard time finding cosmos related docs coz' they're not categorized separately, is it possible to have a separate category concerning Cosmos (or Space, Universe)? paleeeeeeeeeeeeez??? :)
Believe it or not I watch this thing on HD whenever I'm bored, I've recently watched it before going to sleep :) guess I might have watched it some 20-30 times... I think the CGI is "as close as it can get in this era" to what our "current understanding of reality is".
Such a beautiful journey. If you wish to continue learning about the creation of our universe, as well as what great adventures are in store for us , you might want to check out The Urantia Book (it is all over the Internet).
5ooo degrees where how did they measure it!??
it is a nice movie but we need it a hight quality... please
the universe is a: never endind line, at the end of an unreachable point, at the end of a never ending line e.g. 8
Blown away with this documentry and won't tire of watching.
This documentary is mind boggling......
It should leave you in awe, as the constant stream of visuals without cut aways is mesmerising as you try to grasp the cosmos. The best documentary, I have ever seen on this subject, and any other subject for that matter. This is a must see for every human on the planet in their lifetime. Guiding one with to ponder the scale and wonders of the universe, and ultimately seeing 'The bigger picture' of what our very existence is.
The problem with most North-American, and some British, documentaries is that the narrator is overly dramatic. It ruins this documentary as well. There's no need for trying to make the documentary more dramatic by adding comments like "Life couldn't survive on this hostile planet! ..or could it?? maybe underneath the surface??? maybe one day we could drill a hole there and high five the aliens?!?!"
They should talk like normal people. Tell us the latest knowledge of scientists and move on. Facinating subject anyhow..
Very good documentary, I enjoyed watching. Although I would probably call it "journey to the centre of the universe" though, as the edge would be in the other direction, yes?
Very good graphics and the narration was awesome.
Guided meditation meets space documentary. I love it. I was so there.
Wow. I don't want to come back to Earth anymore :D So beautiful!
