The History of the Universe

Logo for The History of the Universe
This video is something I believe everyone should watch.  It goes against what the religious beliefs that many of us are taught.  The video does not explain any of the occurances taking place but gives a visual presentation of what is unanimous throughout the science community.  I believe if this video is shown to children while they are still in the adolescent stages of their development, it will stick with them.  The visuals and chosen and the processes that occur through out the video explain...

I like this video. the animations were great and it put things in persoective such as space and time. I do wonder where the information was gathered from though.

It was a well made video of the current theories, but a little difficult to follow at times. I do take some exceptions with your comment about the video. First, the scientific community is far from unaminous about evolution, and if you try to tell kids in school that religions are all wrong, the PTA will have you drummed out in a heart beat. It is not your job to express your religious views to someone else's children. When teaching evolution, it is important to remind people it is a theory, not a fact or law. Evolution goes against the law of entropy. Many scientists believe in divine design along with natural selection. It is up to everyone to make up their own minds.

The best astronomy/evolution video that I have ever seen! More gripping, entertaining, and informative than the Fantasia version. I plan to show this to my 5-year-old twins at least once per year until high school, and plan to incorporate this into my Jr. High science classes as well.

Used in course

This is beautiful, I love these sorts of cosmic perspectives. It really makes clear the beauty of change, and the wonder of life! Great reminder that we are all the results of supernovae "star dust"!
