Editorial Reviews

From prehistoric times, to the 21st century, humanity has had a fascination with the stars overhead. Ever-changing and yet perfectly constant, the secrets of the constellations remained locked away in their icy vastness for countless centuries. The sun and stars seemed to rotate around our planet and we thought Earth was the center of the universe, even as we longed to travel among the stars. Beginning with Galileo's use of the early telescope, man began to look deeper into the heavens, discovering our place in the solar system, our Galaxy, and the infinite Universe beyond. By the late 20th century, man had taken his first tentative steps into the future, walking on the moon and sending probes into the depths of space. Science and technology now allow astronomers to look even deeper into space and back in time to the very origins of our universe, and as some mysteries are solved, more appear. This special 2 DVD set, featuring distinguished scientists and guest narrators, takes you on a journey into these mysteries. Along with stunning color photography of deep space, far away galaxies and supernovas, you will confront the most perplexing and fascinating questions of all time.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Most of these seven documentaries on two DVDs issued in 2006 by TIMELESS MEDIA GROUP were used in secondary school science classes in the early 1970s. Cinematography and editing are often first rate, images lovely to look at, but much here is outdated, useful to modern students primarily as a scrapbook of things and events we marveled at long ago, and of what collective dreams we then had for the future.

PROGRAM--

A VIEW OF THE SKY
This chapter primarily deals with Newton, Copernicus, Galileo and how they changed our knowledge of the Solar System. Also discussed are Einstein's description of an ever-expanding universe and his famous E=mc² theory of relativity (that nothing moves faster than the speed of light, and how light bends when approaching a large object, such as a planet or star).

A MAN'S REACH SHOULD EXCEED HIS GRASP
To a classical score that includes segments of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, Burgess Meredith narrates the story of aeronautics, from when manned flight wasn't yet a reality to NASA's plans to search for life on Mars, a quest that continues to this day. We see such antiquities as the SST and computers fed info by hole-punched paper ribbon. A quick flash through both the USA's and USSR's space programs culminates in historic Apollo missions that are highlighted by now familiar lunar films and photos like Earthrise over a desolate moonscape.

UNIVERSE
The Big Bang Theory. A cross-section of the sun and how this medium-sized middle-aged star generates heat. A look at each planet, the asteroid belt, the galaxy and more, all narrated by a soothing-voiced man. An award-winning documentary in its day.

SKYLAB AND THE SUN
