Thrilling advances in science today are heralding the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Hosted by Professor Stephen Hawking, this five-part series travels the globe to explore the amazing research and awesome inventions that will change the course of our world.

A stellar cast of notable scientists joins Hawking on this adventure, including naturalist David Attenborough, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, physicist Kathy Sykes, and reproductive-medicine pioneer Robert Winston. They offer expert commentary on the revolutions that will improve, extend, and forever transform our lives. From brain-controlled wheelchairs to cancer-destroying bacteria and from self-driving cars to the power potential in a single atom, an almost unimaginable future is becoming reality.

Cambridge professor, bestselling author, and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Stephen Hawking is a renowned physicist famed for his work on black holes and his efforts to explain scientific theories to lay audiences.

Top Customer Reviews

By Harold Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWER on September 23, 2012
Entertaining story of discoveries through scientists' eyes. Presented at a layman's level. Magnificent footage and several interesting scientist presenters for each segment. See how science is a force for good. "Prepare to see your future" as one said. You need not have the intelligence of top scientists to enjoy this series. Even good for youth, educational, but kids will find it enthralling.

I bought this for my dad for XMAS and we watched it together while I was home for XMAS. The material that their working on and the technological boundaries that they're breaching are fascinating and uplifting to see. The human race might survive after all :)
