About The Show

Using one single, unbroken shot, explore the entire length of the universe. Venturing past Neil Armstrong’s footsteps still sealed on the moon, soar over brightly illuminated Venus onto Mercury, a small planet made almost entirely of iron that may perhaps be the left-over remnants of a much larger planet. Mars is a planet of extremes: with tornadoes, volcanoes and canyons unlike anything seen on Earth while Jupiter’s ever-present red storm is three times the size of Earth and has lasted for hundreds of years. Reaching Saturn’s moon Titan, discover a landscape closely resembling Earth. Titan’s rivers, lakes and oceans are not made of water, but of liquid methane. Could life exist here? Travelling more than 90 trillion kilometres from Earth, step inside the Epsilon Eridani star system where spectacular rings of dust and ice resemble the formation of our own solar system 4.5 billion years ago. Even further out is star Gliese 581, about the same age as our sun with a planet that is just the right distance to possibly support life. Passing the Pillars of Creation, see deep inside these clouds where huge stars are born, bringing light and perhaps even life to the universe.
