10 December 2010 | by (Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Stephen Hawking: "Suppose we are only a highly developed breed of monkey that lives on a small planet, but we can speculate about the universe as a whole." :)

Though the film bears no new information - it generalizes the previously accumulated knowledge (and this is good) but I watched it with pleasure, because it has a beautiful computer graphics and pleasant ambient music. Ending the series "History of the Universe" was a pleasant surprise - it reminded me of transhumanism. I immediately imagined the genetically modified Space Marines who travel through the galaxy for Make Benefit Glorious Imperium of Mankind :)
