We are in the midst of the greatest era of space discovery. Twenty first-century spacecraft and sophisticated imaging technology are venturing into uncharted territory every day, and much of the extraordinary phenomena are happening right in our own cosmic backyard.
Take an exhilarating, unprecedented 3D tour of the seven most amazing wonders of our solar system, beginning with a trip to Enceladus, one of Saturn’s outer moons, where icy geysers spout from its surface. Then venture to Saturn’s famous rings, which contain mountain ranges that rival the Alps; dive into Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, the eye of the biggest storm in the solar system; soar through the Asteroid Belt, made of millions of rocks left over from the formation of the solar system; trek up Mount Olympus, the largest volcano located on Mars; have a close encounter with the searing surface of the sun; and finish the journey by exploring our very own home – planet Earth.

I was not aware this was made for TV content, and the commercial breaks and very sensationalised soundtrack detracts for me from the wonder of the content, but that is my taste in film making. However that may be better for the younger audience. My daughter was engaged except for the painful unaligned stereo which hurt her eyes to and compelled us to switch to 2D.
As far as the story content, yes these are well described, more recent discoveries of wonders in our solar system, which are humbling and amazing. The depiction of the sun in 3D from the stereo images (real, not re-created) captured by dual satellites, is terrific.
So a very reserved review. very inconsistent and at times painful 3D, but seeing the sun in 3D was redeeming. I think they should just do a good final stereo edit and re-issue.
