Editorial Reviews

From its highest mountains to its deepest oceans, our world has challenged explorers of every generation to reach further and seek what lies beyond the horizon. Century upon century, the lure of the unknown has taken humans to every corner of the globe and it has given us a view of Earth that our ancestors could barely imagine.

Now, the drive to explore is leading us upward and outward - off our own planet and out into the solar system where a host of alien worlds offers us vast new terrains to uncover. We roam this territory today, not with our material bodies, but with our robot surrogates, which we have flung through the brutal vacuum and sent plunging into conditions more extreme than any astronaut could endure. Today we see the sun, moon and planets with penetrating clarity - not through human eyes, but through the eyes of the intrepid machines that are blazing a trail for us across the solar system. Their cameras have become our windows onto a bold new adventure.

The latest missions to the sun and planets are providing images so crisp and spectacular it is like peering through a window at another world. But make no mistake; these images are more than just pretty pictures of nature. The increasingly sophisticated and detailed views are shaping our understanding of who we are, where we came from and where we are going. The underlying message of this series is that we are witnessing an unprecedented new age of exploration.

This two disc set with all six 30-minute episodes of the Cosmic Vistas series presents our solar system using the most current imagery and cutting-edge scientific thinking and includes;

Episode 1: Windows To Other Worlds & Fountain of Creation
Episode 2: Rocky Shores & Silent Partner
Episode 3: Borderland & Red Dawn
Episode 4: Lords of Gravity & Outer Limits
Episode 5: Hidden Havens & Icy Gems
Episode 6: Shooting Gallery & Galactic Visions

Format: DVD
This is truly a very good series about the more recent discoveries made in astronomy. But while the DVD set is decent enough why have the producers not made a Blu-ray version available? This series was originally shown (and continues to be shown) on Oasis HD, a high-definition specialty television channel. If any material deserved high definition it is the images shown in the series from various space craft and telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope. I would have given this a five star rating had I been reviewing the (currently non-existent) HD version.

NOTE: There is a second group of Cosmic Vistas episodes that were made more recently. Hopefully, when the producers release those they will do so on Blu-ray as well as on DVD and will also take that opportunity to release a BD version of their other astronomy series, Hubble's Canvas.

UPDATE: As of late December 2013 a third group of 6 episodes has aired on Oasis HD.

I was very happy with this collection of images! I am a space enthusiast with a collection of dvds on Hubble images and on programs with planetary images. This collection is one of the better ones. I gave it four stars instead of five because it is a little dated. Some of the later tv shows have more up-to-date images. I would still recommend this to a friend as the price is not too bad for the footage that you get.
