I found this absolute gem of documentary series via the Curiosity channel available on Amazon. I have spent the entire day just getting from Episode 1-7 of Season 1. Made thru NHK in Japan (don't worry it's in English) and interviewing scientists from every field in Cosmic exploration from around the globe it is complex enough (I think, I'm not a scientist) for scientists, yet so well explained that non science folks like me still learn vast amounts. I found myself rewinding constantly to hear the more technical aspects over and over until I got most of it. The photography is stunning as is the incorporation of CG to give visualization to the concepts explained. For me the most fascinating episode so far is a year in the life of the Curiosity rover on Mars. Fascinating!! As an 11 year old glued to close enough to the TV to get a "scoot back you'll ruin your eyes" from mom as Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon, the fact that we have what is essentially the coolest remote control toy ever tooling about on Mars is mind blowing. This is absolutely one documentary series not to be missed if you have any curiosity about what lies beyond the thin blue line. Thank you Japan!
