Product Description

What happens when we die - do we simply cease to exist or do we survive in some form? It's the greatest mystery of science. Now, biologists, physicists and philosophers are closing in on finding the answer to the ultimate question.

Space seems like it goes on forever - but does it? Surprising new evidence suggests that not only is there a place where the universe ends - but there is something unimaginable lurking beyond it.

Time is not what we think it is. New research questions the nature of time and challenges our most basic perceptions about reality.

New evidence forces us to consider a truly shocking possibility - is our reality an illusion?

New research is discovering that thoughts can fly across space and that we all may be part of a global consciousness. Scientifically, a sixth sense is entirely possible.

There could be more than one version of reality - and more than one you. As scientists unravel this possibility, a new astounding one emerges: these parallel worlds could determine the destiny of the entire universe.

A revolution in science is underway that will transform life on Earth and ensure our survival as a species. If we can solve the equation of everything, it will present the keys to creation itself.

Physicists are designing warp drives, learning how to pry open wormholes, and finding cracks in the fabric of the cosmos to bring the final frontier within our grasp.

Death is a humbling reality - but what if life had no end? Cutting-edge science embarks on a bold mission to extend human life and may soon bring immortality within our grasp.

Across the galaxy lie exotic worlds made entirely of water or stewing with poisonous gas. What kinds of creatures thrive in these places? Would they resemble beings on Earth, or could life take on new and unexpected forms?

Host-narrator Morgan Freeman is back with a second season of Through the Wormhole, the series that uses science to ponder and perhaps answer some of the immense questions that have intrigued and vexed humankind since time immemorial. The first time around, those questions involved proving the existence of God, the possibility of time travel, the presence of life elsewhere in the universe, and other mind-boggling matters, and they are no less weighty this time. In the first of the 10 episodes, "Is There Life After Death?," some experts argue that the soul dies with the body, while others posit the theory that rather than just a bunch of neurons, it's part of the fabric of the universe, "a quantum computer hard-wired into the cosmos," and thus it does exist after we die (one scientist even attempts to "build" a soul to prove it). "Is There an Edge to the Universe?" finds a cosmologist, a theoretician, and others contending that counter to most accepted notions, the universe is not infinite, that it might be shaped like a dodecahedron (i.e., a soccer ball), and that another universe exists beyond the one we know. "Is There a Sixth Sense?" examines such phenomena as "blind sight" (a "subconscious sensory system" that allows sightless people to "see" emotions in others) and a "global mind" or "cosmic consciousness" that may enable us to respond to events before they even occur (the 9/11 terrorist attacks are used to illustrate that possibility). And "Can We Travel Faster than Light?" studies the practical feasibility of warp drives, wormholes, and other marvels familiar to sci-fi fans.

As before, these and other topics (including contemplations of eternal life, what aliens look like, and the possibility that there are more than three dimensions) involve some very complex scientific experiments and dizzying mathematics. But there's also a healthy dose of whimsy (one scientist uses the video game Asteroids and a bagel to illustrate her theories) and plenty of graphics, models, and outstanding visual effects, plus amusing cartoon animation and Freeman's personal touch via several reenactments of his own childhood experiences. All in all, this beautifully produced series is at once provocative, edifying, and entertaining. --Sam Graham

The "Through the Wormhole" series does a great job bringing some of the more esoteric areas of science to the general public. The science content is presented well, without losing the spirit of excitement that drives the researchers. In fact, including snippets of the actual work, and hearing from the actual people on the forefront of discovery, makes this series truly wonderful. Some folks may argue that the science gets a bit diluted, and the "gee whiz" element is stressed too much. Sorry, guys and gals! As a practicing scientist myself, I long ago learned that only a tiny fraction of the people in this world we share want to know everything in the wonky detail that our profession requires, and that we have learned to live with and to love. The only road to good communication of our own joys and insights is, in fact, to emphasize our most human feelings, which we do share with the rest of the world.

"Through the Wormhole" does science communication very well, indeed.

This is not going to suit everyone, but if you like science shows in general, you'll probably get a kick out of it and you'll learn a lot. Hey, it's a TV show, not a documentary of someone's life work. My kids who watch most science films with great interest, got bored pretty quick. Anyway, give it a shot. You'll learn a few things.

This covers fascinating questions, biological (e.g. predation), physical, chemical, and theoretical; it also shows you how scientists think about problems, and how they use their imagination, as well as powers of observation, to propose answers. Illustrated with clever visuals of possible aliens--I would have liked more of those. Morgan Freeman is always great, and the interviews with scientists were suprising and fun!

This series is brilliant. The host Morgan Freeman's love of the subject really helps to create interest. As quoted Einstein said "that religion without science is blind, and science without religion is lame". "Through The Wormhole" neatly blends both disiplines in a seamless synthesis.

I could sit for hours just to listen to Morgan Freeman. Season 2 is every bit as good as Season 1. I can watch it with wonder and awe for hours. I highly recommend both seasons. Freeman almost seems to be speaking for the Universe. Just fantastic!

Delve into Morgan Freeman's Wormhole in this series that explores the dark regions of unanswered questions. Tightly edited, this cheeky exploration really satisfies, like a fine dark chocolate. The production doesn't fudge a thing as it probes into the recesses of speculation. It doesn't turn a blind eye to controversy but not in a simple way that presents everything as either white or black but more of an in-between brown that comes off without the stink of failure. I highly recommend Morgan Freeman's Wormhole. I really got into it. You'll enjoy it so much you'll be coming on back!

This is an excellent series. Morgan Freeman does a good job of presenting the material. I highly recommend this series to the layman who wishes to see what is going on in the frontiers of science.

I have an 11 year old that is completely set on becoming an astrophysicist due to this series and also "Cosmos" (staring Neil deGrasse Tyson). He is even taking extracurricular math to get ahead. He asks me to take math!!

Really, this is an awesome series and addresses real issues with astrophysics and other cutting edge space/science issues.

I suggest that your children, as well as yourself if you are curious, watch this (as well as "Cosmos, Space Time Odyssey").
