And what if we owe our existence something else? But the discovery raises many questions. Its goal is nothing less than recreating the first instants of creation, when the universe was unimaginably hot and long-extinct forms of matter sizzled and cooled into stars, planets, and ultimately, us. . Season 4 - Episode 7 We are in the midst of a revolution so insidious we can't even see it. This is an adult geared science series. It asks global questions, which are often impossible to get answers even from the most brilliant scientists: how was our universe created? Some subject matter may also be considered sensitive to certain individuals.
For example, one episode focused on the Big Bang Theory and if it really happened. Some experts believe God may exist only in our brain, that we are wired to worship the supernatural and that faith in a higher power gives us an evolutionary advantage. These questions have been pondered by the most brilliant minds in history. Season 5 - Episode 7 We feel it every moment of our lives but for physicists, gravity is the longest running unsolved mystery of the universe. Now, science has evolved to the point where hard facts and evidence may be able to provide us with answers instead of philosophical theories. This episode wonders into the mystifying definition of 'eternity' as it relates to human lifespan.
Or, all of our notions about the essence of what is real will fall apart. As scientists further unravel this astounding possibility, a new possibility emerges: the fate of our entire universe may depend on these hidden cosmic twins. The presentations are clear and compelling. Each scientist presents their theory and then you are left to consider what you think the true answer is. What is our human destiny on this planet? From our telephones to our vacuum cleaners to our cars, we have robots that live and work beside us.
Is it really possible to change human nature? This is one of my favorite series on television. Just an overall great series in general. Is it possible that God is really just a neurological accident? Season 2 - Episode 8 Medical advances have doubled human life expectancy in past centuries. I highly suggest checking out the other seasons, I thought season 4 was weaker than the rest. Can we predict events in the future? Season 3 - Episode 10 Our belief in a God above explains all we can't understand. Could physical laws on the cusp of being discovered be at the root of all this? But the Sun also holds a dark secret: someday, our aging, expanding star will bathe the Earth in a fiery holocaust.
Now, modern science may be able to provide us with answers. Technology is close to making children from two fathers, or two mothers. I'd rate this series up there with Cosmos by Carl Sagan the original series, not the new one as one of the top science shows of all time. Though the Wormhole is a really interesting series. Season 2 - Episode 6 Since the ancient Greeks first speculated that everything they observed in reality was the result of the interaction of tiny particles they called atoms, great thinkers have tried to find a single mathematical formula that governs and explains the workings of the entire universe.
Nevertheless, they continue to try, because without that final piece of the puzzle that is reality, the sum total of what we know falls a bit short of making sense. Nothing, not even light, can escape the gravitational pull of a black hole. And now we're designing them to think for themselves, giving them the power to learn to move on their own. Astronomers now believe there are billions of them out in the cosmos, swallowing up planets, even entire stars in violent feeding frenzies. Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence - the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. Season 2 - Episode 2 It is commonly theorized that the universe began with the Big Bang 13. Although the title would suggest that every question might be based on space, there are a number of different topics that are touched on besides space exploration.
Each episode keeps you entertained as well as informed. Description: If you wanted to find answers to eternal questions, the new season of the documentary author's story from Morgan Freeman was created especially for you. While not every show is a topic I am enthralled with the actual content and views displayed are awesome. Today, they think there must be five times as much dark matter as regular matter out there. Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence - the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. Through the Wormhole brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science - Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and more - to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe.
Scientist are interviewed and some do experiments to help determine what the answer could be. In 2012 they found it - the Higgs Boson, the God Particle. Season 4 - Episode 3 We are all at the mercy of the Sun. If other universes exist, then what is time like in them: could their Time be different from ours? Interviews with lots of leading theorists. Once a question is put forth at the beginning of an episode, Morgan usually finds some type of connection either through a child hood experience or something more current that happened to him. Season 3 - Episode 5 Is empty space really empty? Was it the explosion of a star or the release of particles from a black hole? Can we find a way to replace the chemistry of life with something more durable? What was there before the beginning? We feel it, but it may not be real. Do we exercise free will? Could it have formed its own dark stars, planets, and even life forms? Where do religious beliefs come from? Now other scientists have stepped into the fray, arguing that free will is an illusion.
Can you run time backwards just as easily as it runs forward, just as left-to-right can swap for right-to-left? Scientists have hunted for a particle to explain how matter came to exist in the universe. Where do we go after we die? Then when you view an episode that has a topic your interested in you become mesmerized by the depth of views and ideas you are exposed to. Could this Shadow Universe threaten our world of light? He also theorized that we as humans can never travel faster than the speed of light, which leaves the stars and other galaxies almost impossibly out of our reach. Scientists regard understanding the true nature of empty space may explain where the universe came from, whether it is fated to expand into oblivion or whether it will undergo another dramatic transformation that could destroy everything we know. Finding them is no longer restricted to the realm of science fiction.
