Reviews

Come on the ultimate cosmic journey - from Planet Earth to the edge of the Universe. In one single, epic camera move we travel from earth, accelerate past the aurorae, past the Moon and our neighbour planets, out of our Solar System, to the nearest stars, nebulae and galaxies and beyond - right to the edge of the Universe itself. Nominated Pariscience Award ** DVD has detailed menu structure*** With a unique combination of real images from the world's biggest telescopes and cutting edge visual effects and CGI - we create the first accurate non-stop journey from here to infinity. On this awe-inspiring and unique voyage we'll encounter the most beautiful, powerful and mysterious phenomena in the Cosmos, from pulsars to supermassive black holes, from star nurseries to quasars and much else besides. The storyline of Journey to the Edge of the Universe revolves around the vertiginous scale of that Cosmos. Each encounter with a planet, nebula or galaxy takes us a further step in this ultimate journey of discovery - a journey to the edge of our knowledge. "This documentary is, hands down, the most well made documentary on the Universe I have ever seen. I have been watching Discovery Channel and other channels like it since I was a child. I've seen a thousand documentaries on our universe. Nothing even comes close to this"

Saw this on the National Geographic channel and was very impressed with the format. Starting from a campfire on Earth, you are taken outwards first to the Moon and inner-planets, then the outer solar system and beyond - to the edge of the Universe, before returning to the starting point.
The graphics are excellent as is the narration. All in all, a very entertaining and fact-filled look at the wonders of the Universe.

I really wanted to see this on blu-ray but the Region 1 release isn't compatible with U.K players, which is a shame because this standard U.K DVD release looks poor. If you've seen a high def transfer your know what I mean. It's like wearing someone else's glasses. Everything's just a bit out of focus and it could be sharper and more colourful which is a shame because the visuals are so good.

Fantastic dvd - feels like you are on a tour of the Universe. Gives a tour visually so you are not overwhelmed by the names of different galaxys, comets stars and moons. Really informative and eerily beautiful
