What a Wonderful World!
21 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I were a science teacher, I would put this video on the top shelf and show it till it wore out. This is the story of our earth. It is the story of how the planet came to be, how outside forces as well as internal ones have affected its evolution. It's the story of how the black slime of hydrocarbons created by the incredible heat of the time of inception became viable creatures. It's about how plate tectonics changed the face of our small marble and how the crust of the Earth is like the thin layer of a plum, when affected over millions of years, buckles and rises, twists and turns, but due to our very short time, we never get to see this. Tyson talks about the shifts of seas and continents. He talks about the gravitational forces in the solar system that have tilted and turned our planets axis and it's orbit around the sun. In about forty-five minutes, I had the most incredible lesson in basic geology and fundamental biology. This series is so captivating and it's such a shame that so few people watched it. We may rethink some things. But that probably isn't going to happen.
