Before birth and beyond death of our universe!
4 June 2017 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

This is not exactly a documentary series you could expect if you are a space geek. It is just a tour of Australia where the famous British physicist Brian Cox interacts with scientists and space enthusiast people. So it is just a two episode mini-series, but there's enough interesting stuff to add more info to our knowledge of cosmology.

He has visited some historic sites related to space and science. The places were used as a background while giving out us his new discussion on the related topic. As usual, you will like it, how he explains everything in his style. Comparing and giving examples, even more than that, those specialists in the field giving their opinions, I mean honest opinions will stun you.

Because science is not everything. It is a form, an order for us to understand everything around us. When they said about the future of space science, not like a hundred or a thousand years later, but millions and it could be viewed as a religion as in the todays world of atheists think. Means we could preserve the skeletons for the future study that we found digging earth, which are a million years old, but we can't do the same for the universe as it is expanding very fast.

The first episode was the topic of 'Creation'. The creation of the universe, but since we know there are many theories related to that and the (Hot) Big Bang was among the most accepted, this new discussion goes beyond that. So it remains more a question rather we could explain such topic, as what was there before the Big Bang. But I liked how they all opinioned rather firmly stating as a (new) theory.

❝One day, some smart person will come along and solve it for you. That's the beauty thing of how science works.❞

The second episode, 'End of Days', is the topic about how our universe is going to end/die. If there's a beginning, then there has to be an end. All the stars going to burn out, making the sky dark like I mentioned the humans from the future think us crazy for saying stuff without any evidence when they see up. It is also possible since the universe is expanding, the stars, planets, galaxies reach beyond our eyes, technology could see/detect them. So the dream of finding another home/earth is merely a fiction, and same goes for aliens to arrive on our earth.

When there is a talk about space and time, it seems incomplete without the participation of Neil deGrasse Tyson. Among other space experts, he was in a small part like for a minute or less. Brian Cox took cues from the scientists he's interacting with and attached his version of the opinion. Each episode, the entire series was too short, but totally worth how it all sorted out. In fact, nothing from the series were considered the truth, but possibilities from the expert's viewpoint since our space exploration is still in early stage, an infant.

Excluding what lies between the beginning and the ending, which is mostly present, the series talks about everything else about the universe. So it is like a science fiction film, except everything happens in oral. Even the graphics were not given greater preference, yet manages decently with simple ones for our understanding. Another reason's it is not a regular production, could be one time programme. Or if we're lucky, another tour to different destination as another season.

There's a little talk about the multiverse and how different it could be from ours was another sub-topic. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this small piece of work by professor Brian Cox. More or less like reading that published on IJSpaceSe, but it was not, since it's not a research, only a discussion and opinions. So what are you waiting for if you are a space geek.

8.5/10
