The Universe in 3D - Catastrophes that Changed the Planets
is an excellent TV documentary series from the History Channel
that takes viewers on an astronomical journey through space and time
that turn complex theories into easily digestible chunks of information.
Using fantastic computer generated images, interviews with experts and
dissecting theories by using real-world examples, The Universe is a
documentary that can be watched by anyone.
Their current release
is The Universe in 3D Catastrophes that Changed the Planets that
transforms this documentary into glorious 3D that truly enhances the
entire presentation. This current release, Catastrophes that Changed
the Planets highlights how the universe shaped the planets in our
solar system from the barren deserts of Mars to how the rings around
Saturn may have been caused by one of its moons.
What I liked about
this documentary was the stunning use of computer generated images that
really made you feel like you are part of something bigger and with the
inclusion of 3D, it truly immerses you into this interesting documentary
about how the planets of our solar system were formed. The highlight of
this documentary for me was the explanation of the rings of Saturn that
not only made logical sense but is backed by scientific theory.
What a great
documentary and that we could happily recommend to all those people with
3D TV's, especially documentary buffs!
