Himself - Narrator


There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand in all the beaches and deserts of Earth. This documentary uses computer graphics and deep-space photographs to explore the 'macro' universe beyond planet Earth. Leaving Earth orbit, we pass by the outer planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto/Charon. We then pass through the Oort Cloud, reservoir of comets, which extends up to 2 light-years from the Sun. Our Sun's nearest stellar neighbors Proxima and Alpha Centauri are next, but there is probably no life there. After a discussion of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), we head for the star Geminga. Now a rapidly-spinning pulsar, about 342,000 years B.C. it was a supernova 50 light years from Earth, visible in our day sky. In the constellation Orion, Betelgeuse may become a supernova soon.

I liked it!

Okay, maybe it isn't the best or the most educational video of it's kind. Maybe it's even a little bit cheesy. But I loved it! Back when I was in my 20's, my best friend bought this video at a discount somewhere, and we used to watch it all the time (it was particularly good at 4:20, if you know what I mean). I adore Patrick Stewart's voice, and the computer generated animation was very pretty, and the music just added to the mood. Are there better, more educational works of this kind out there? Sure. But this one is a nice introduction for those who are perhaps not as smart as the average bear. It would also be a great introduction for kids. Or for stoners! I'm just saying, it's approachable and easily understandable. It's nicely general. And again, it's visually appealing. Someone said it was like a music video and I agree in that it has that kind of entertainment factor. :) It's edutainment, folks! Fun movie.
