Storyline

There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand in all the beaches and deserts of Earth. This documentary uses computer graphics and deep-space photographs to explore the 'macro' universe beyond planet Earth. Leaving Earth orbit, we pass by the outer planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto/Charon. We then pass through the Oort Cloud, reservoir of comets, which extends up to 2 light-years from the Sun. Our Sun's nearest stellar neighbors Proxima and Alpha Centauri are next, but there is probably no life there. After a discussion of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), we head for the star Geminga. Now a rapidly-spinning pulsar, about 342,000 years B.C. it was a supernova 50 light years from Earth, visible in our day sky. In the constellation Orion, Betelgeuse may become a supernova soon.

BEWARE, the director is blowing his own horn here.
7 March 2005 | by vyrussSee all my reviews

This guy is a probable nobody who has elevated himself to self-proclaimed cinema god status! He is posting all over the place as StarCastle99, StarCastle999 and endless other permutations, heaping praise on the great Oscar, Emmy, and every other award-winning director Don Barrett.

Regardless of the director's behaviour, unfortunately, Mr. Barrett's contributions to the Space documentary genre are almost pitifully unwatchable. Why? Cheap 3D rendering passed off as "real footage", brooding orchestral music in the background (an idea ripped off from the truly excellent, older documentary series COSMOS), awkward editing, what else do you need to hear? Stay away from this.

Also be very careful when reading Barrett's self-aggrandizing comments.
