I'm disappointed. I purchased this DVD thinking that it would be relatively current information, since it's described as released in 2007. Well, the content of the DVD was created some time in the late 80's; there are references to "when the Hubble telescope is launched into space" and "we're almost 20 years after we put a man on the moon"... The man on the moon was July 1969 and the Hubble was launched in April 1990. So the information contained on this DVD was created around 1988 or early 1989. A bit outdated I would say.
It would be great for someone who knows very little about these topics. Nice introduction to some of the concepts explained in Hawking's book "A Brief History of Time", published in 1988.
I would have not purchased this DVD if I had known the content was 20 years old.

The video features Carl Sagan, world renown astronomer from Cornell, Stephen hawking, best selling author and mathematics professor and Arthur C. Clark, possibly one of the greatest minds in science fiction. This is a landmark video, and should be on everyones shelf. This is a great way to learn about three very great viewpoints in the universe.
I have read A brief History of time, and Stephen hawking pulls heavily from his book. Carl Sagan also mentions many themes present in Demon Haunted World, and there are echoes of Pale Blue Dot there also.
To say the least i loved the video. and it was NOT boring. It got my brain working and i was up all night thinking. Id give it thirteen stars if i could.
