My Take on the Series
I have always been a person that loves learning and from all of the way back to when I was a child, the idea of our solar system and beyond always grabbed my fascination. I can think back to when I was a child, collecting space Legos, drawing spaceships all of the time, watching star wars and star trek, reading comics and simply dreaming of aliens and the larger cosmos that we are a part of.
This series expanded my understanding of how small of a player Earth is in the larger scheme of the cosmos. As I was watching this I was humbled by how vast the cosmos was (from what we can comprehend). When I watched this I had my daughters watch with me, and to watch their eyes and talk to them afterward was exciting, because I think for the most part this series blew their minds (it did for me too).

I have to say that the information packed into this series as well as the vibrant color and beauty in this was simply breathtaking. The series is so complete and you will leave this with so much more information that you first started.

I would highly recommend this to all as I believe that everyone needs to understand the universe and our place within this grand universal design.
