How the Universe Works is the greatest story ever told, the creation of everything us. The programme investigates how the Universe came into existence out of nothing, and how it grew from a miniscule point, smaller than an atomic particle, to the vast cosmos we see today.
The Rosetta mission with its lander, Philae, is a groundbreaking expedition to land on a comet (Comet 67P) for the very first time; special access reveals what this cutting-edge journey discovers and how these mysterious objects help create life on Earth.
A brand-new NASA mission to the sun reveals cutting-edge discoveries about Earth's star; as the Parker Solar Probe dives through the sun's atmosphere, its findings challenge everything known about this strange place.
The hidden kingdom of microscopic alien organisms shapes the universe as much as galaxies, stars, and planets; new discoveries reveal how bacteria, viruses, and other micro-organisms built life on Earth and influence humanity's future in the cosmos.
White dwarfs are small, dead stars with a dangerous side, capable of exploding into supernovas and destroying planets; new research suggests these mysterious phenomena may be the key to understanding the universe itself.
Galaxies are locked in continual combat across the universe, and our own Milky Way will face its biggest opponent ever, the Andromeda Galaxy, in a titanic and deadly struggle that could create a new and unrecognizable super galaxy.
