A Mind-Blowing, Soul-Expanding Trip Through the Known and Unknown
My wife and I watched this astounding documentary last night. We both sat there with our mouths literally agape as this astonishing film pulled us into a journey from earth, through our solar system, our Galaxy, galaxies beyond our own, and all the way back to the beginning of time. As another reviewer commented, the tone is not from the point of view of "I'm a brilliant scientist and I know a lot more than you." You are guided along instead as if you were a tourist on a tour bus through the heavens. Before the film was over, I had achieved an epiphany. This to me was more than a film...it changed my life. It is beautiful, poetical, and it will shock you with its unadorned majesty.
