Host and physicist Dr. Derek Muller unlocks the mysteries of uranium, one of the Earth's most controversial elements.

Born from the collapse of a star, uranium has brought hope, progress and destruction. It has revolutionized society, from medicine to warfare. It is an element that has profoundly shaped the past, will change the future and will exist long after humans have left the Earth. Filmed on five continents, this two-hour program, produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Sonya Pemberton, delivers a gripping story of an ancient element's footprint on the world.
