Wow, super enjoyable and informative. I watched it 3 times already.

Visually pleasing, comprehensive overview of our galaxy and how we are learning about it. Covers a lot of information with just enough depth to understand what they are talking about and no more. Liked the background music. The DVD equivalent of a light read.

Fluffy. Shiny pictures but very little actual information content. See instead "How the Universe Works" (523.1 HOW), which is excellent - both a beautiful production and chock-full of information. (I turned this one off after about 15 minutes during which very little happened.)

A super-massive black hole always puzzles me.
I wonder if a killer asteroid will ever collide with the earth in my life time.

documentary - amazing shots from the Hubbel Telescope. Informative explainations from the scientists. It seems as thow we are slowly being sucked into a black hole of which then we are recycled into dark matter and reborn as particles which make up gasses and eventually form stars.

Great imagery. A must-see for anyone interested in the subject.

Outstanding cosmic imagery, though I'd have probably gone with a different narrator, and added on a half hour to go into more detail.

very inspiring to hear how the heavy elements in our bones and blood (ie calcium/iron) ultimately came from a dying star billions of years ago
so inspiring to feel that connection to time and space,
overall a great watch.
