Trivia

When the Venera probes first sent back their images from the surface of Venus, there was wide speculation that there was life on the planet due to irregularities in the images noted as "black flaps" and "scorpions". It wasn't until later confirmed that the anomalies in the images were simply artifacts due to image processing. The surface of Venus is essentially the temperature of the inside of a burning house.

Mind Boggling
22 June 2019 | by lesnarSee all my reviews

Professor Brian Cox is the David Attenborough of scientific programmes. He brings a wealth of knowledge to any media he is involved in, not least The Planets, which is a masterpiece of television.

The story-telling and graphical representation is fantastic. Each episode seems to outdo its predecessor.

If astronomy is your thing, or you simply to want to learn more about our solar system, I implore you to watch this series.
