From a Flat Earth to Black Holes via the Big Bang
7 February 2004 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This is an incredible piece of work. Each step of the way is carefully explained: who and why it is correct, who and why the competing theories were wrong, and how it lead to the next step. What's the value of knowing that there are galaxies millions of light years away and black holes?: Just knowing. And, if you can identify with that, you have to see this series.
