In The News...

WATCH The Universe Tuesdays at 9pm/8c only on The History Channel .

From the planets to the stars and out to the edge of the unknown, history and science collide in the new series The Universe. Fifty years have flown by since man first ventured into outer space, but the heavens are only now yielding their greatest secrets. Robotic rovers give us eyes on the red rock of Mars. NASA probes slam into comets at hyper speed. Deep space telescopes capture violent images of the birth of stars and their collapse into black holes. All of these have significantly changed the way we look at ourselves. As our own planet churns with the effects of global warming, it's natural to look into the heavens and wonder about the rest of the real estate. Is there anywhere else out there that that can support life? Or, is there truly no place like home?

Using cutting-edge computer graphics, this series brings the universe down to earth to show what life would be like on other planets, and to imagine what kind of life forms might evolve in alien atmospheres. Each episode will examine how the discoveries were made and the fascinating stories of the scientists and explorers who dared to venture into the uncharted territory of the universe.
