A great work of scientific outreach
on October 25, 2010
Professor Brian Cox is a particle scientist who's clearly passionate about his work. In Wonders of the Solar System, he explains some of the wonders in space (hence the title) with comparisons to phenomena on Earth to make the subject matter more easily understood. For instance, when talking about Saturn's icy rings, he draws a parallel with the Arctic glaciers. His enthusiasm is contagious and makes you want to learn more. For people with little or no scientific knowledge, this is a great documentary series that look simply amazing on Blu-ray. There are some CGI used for the planets, but it is so well done that it's unnoticeable.
