Having explored the wonders of the solar system, Professor Brian Cox steps boldly on to an even bigger stage - the universe. Who are we? Where do we come from? For thousands of years humanity has turned to religion and myth for answers to these enduring questions. But in this…
Which Universe Is Ours?
Investigate what Einstein called his "greatest mistake"--his rejection of his own theory's prediction that spacetime should be dynamic and evolving. Chart the work of a group of scientists, including Alexander Friedman, Georges Lemaitre, and Edwin Hubble, who advanced the realization that our universe is expanding from an apparent big bang.
The Hunt for Higgs
Part of the Series: Horizon
Symmetry, the universe and everything Horizon goes behind the scenes at CERN to follow one of the most epic and expensive scientific quests of all time: the search for the elusive Higgs particle. It is believed to gives mass to everything in our universe. But the hunt for Higgs is…
Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime - Understanding Gravity Course
Gravity rules the universe. Without it, everything would dissolve into a gas of randomly interacting atoms. Yet gravity is one of the least understood forces in nature. Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime introduces you to key ideas in gravity research over the past 400 years. It's an awe-inspiring journey…
BLAST! - The Secrets of Outer Space
This film explores both the heartbreak and the glory of trying to unravel the secrets of outer space. Mark Devlin, PhD (the filmmaker's brother) launches revolutionary telescopes on NASA high-altitude balloons. Dangerous, but necessary if he wants to look back in time and reveal a hidden Universe of never-before-seen galaxies.…
The Sombrero Galaxy: An Island Universe
Episode 7 of Experiencing Hubble
In the 1920s, astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered the true nature of galaxies as island universes. Some 80 years later, the telescope named in his honor has made thousands of breathtaking pictures of galaxies. Focus on one in particular: an edge-on view of the striking Sombrero galaxy.

What's So Special about Being Human?
Episode 1 of Being Human
Humans are, from an evolutionary perspective, certainly the most unique species on Earth. Start the course by learning how to approach the subject of human behavior. You may be surprised to discover that there are plenty of ways in which we have the same behavioral aspects as other animals: and…
Size Matters
Part of the Series: Secrets of Bones
Evolutionary biologist and master skeleton builder Ben Garrod begins a six-part journey to discover how bones have enabled vertebrates to colonise and dominate practically every habitat on Earth. Ben shows us what bone is constructed from and how it can support animals that are both minuscule - a frog just…
An Evolving Universe
Trace the discoveries that led astronomers to conclude that the universe began some 14 billion years ago in a big bang. Detailed measurements of the cosmic microwave background and other observations point to an initial period of tremendous inflation, followed by slow expansion and an as-yet inexplicable accelerating phase.
Our Nearest Exoplanetary Neighbors
Pinpoint the location of the nearest exoplanetary systems to Earth. First, get the big picture on the layout of our Milky Way galaxy, its size, and the Sun's position. Also learn why the Kepler spacecraft focused on exoplanets much more distant than those targeted by the Doppler technique.
