The Universe, Season 3Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Immerse yourself in another spectacular exploration of space in Season 3 of this epic series from HISTORY. A virtual collision of astronomy and history, these enlightening episodes of unprecedented programming utilize strikingly realistic computer re-creations and animations to provide unique insight into the mysteries of our universe and beyond. From bizarre clouds to the hypothetical Planet X, from space disasters to space sex to the possibility of future life-threatening cosmic collisions, experience the cosmos like never before — not through a telescope or textbook, but firsthand. With The Universe you'll feel like youíve traveled to the edge of the unknown: see how NASA is arming itself with the latest technology to pre-empt an apocalyptic attack in "Deadly Comets and Meteorites: Seeds of Life and Messengers of Doom;" learn how scientists envision breaking the light barrier in "Light Speed;" and explore startling new evidence showing the existence of universes other than our own in "Parallel Universes."

Only 6?

Season 3 has been finished since February. 12 episodes in total. Why only 6 here? I want the rest please!

Nice graphic, but lacks some depth

I've watched some episodes from previous seasons,and personally i found that 1. they did manage to successfully visualize many concepts and theories and ideas, which is really great because some of them can be hard to grasp without some visual references (at least for me :P) 2. but for anyone who has some idea about cosmology and contemporary physics & its theories, this series can appear to be somewhat superficial. 45 mins should be enough to have a relatively thorough discussion on one topic and the physical consequences without involving all the complex mathematics. Unfortunately I wasn't quite satisfied on that. Overall I'd give it a 3/5, for it's well made for general audience, but if you are looking for depth or satisfactory explanations, don't be too hasty. (I mean there are some good podcast out there and they are free~)

from sublime to ridiculous

the first two seasons were awesome but they're scraping the bottom of the barrel here...the topics are bordering on the ridiculous (sex in space? really?) and the content is repetitive and mind-numbingly elementary. was hoping for more!
