BBC: Space (With Sam Neill) – Episode 6 – Boldly Go

Entirely new methods of transportation will be necessary if man is to conquer the vast distances between Earth and the stars. These could be probes powered with ion drives, solar sails driven by the Sun or wormholes capable of harnessing the power of a dying star and travelling to the farthest reaches of the universe.

The search for life on other worlds has been compared to identifying a single grain of sand on the Moon, yet the quest goes on despite the lack of concrete evidence to support the existence of other life forms. This edition of ‘Space: Flying Visits’ examines how the hunt will move forward with the further exploration of Mars and Europa, a moon of Jupiter, before the planned launch of a series of laser-controlled, Earth-orbiting telescopes in 2025.

BBC: Space (With Sam Neill) – Episode 3 – Black Holes

Sam Neill transports us into the murky and terrifying world of the universe’s ultimate monster – the black hole. They are only ten miles across, but they can rip apart a star of a million miles or more. Black holes are gravity gone mad. There should be ten million of them in our galaxy – but we have only found two hundred of them. So are black holes any threat to us here on Earth? Sam’s voyage of discovery ends with a look at what would happen if our planet even encountered one of these interstellar destroyers.

BBC: Space (With Sam Neill) – Episode 1 – Star Stuff

Sam Neill explores the wonders and terrors of the Universe – and discovers that human beings may all come from outer space. Every atom that we are made of was created billions of years ago in the hearts of exploding stars – and even the spark of life may have been carried to Earth inside a comet. On a journey from the Big Bang to the living things we see around us today, Sam shows how we came to be here – because of what happened out in space.
