Inside The Milky Way
3 February 2014 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

According to this excellent documentary, there are 200 billion stars in our galaxy. The Milky Way is a beautiful sight under dark skies. It is a spiral, a giant disk of stars. Our solar system lies between two of its spiral arms. Astronomers compare the Milky Way to the beautiful M74. We visit the Orion Nebula and witness star birth from dust and gas. We journey to the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant from which heavy elements were created. We move to the galaxy's heart to discover the black hole called so-2. We travel upward to the globular clusters, the oldest stars. Dark matter is discussed, the glue holding the Milky Way together. Light passes through it. We see the Milky Way colliding with the Andromeda to form an elliptical. Geoff Marcy talks about how galaxies may have habitable zones much like stars while Seth Shostak adds some humor. National Geographic did this show.
