Synopsis

Jupiter: The Ruthless One - Mars: The Doomed One - Sun: The Fiery One - Saturn: The Beautiful One - Pluto: The Mysterious One Professor Brian Cox is back with another insightful and mind-blowing exploration of space. This time he shows us our solar system as we've never seen it before. We're living through an extraordinary time of exploration. A fleet of space probes are continually beaming data back to Earth. Hidden in this stream of code are startling new discoveries about the worlds we share with the Sun. We will piece together these remarkable findings to tell the greatest science story of them all - the life and times of the Solar System. What emerges is a dramatic tale of planetary siblings. Born from violence, they grow up together, in time becoming living, breathing worlds, only to fade away one by one as they age. Along the way we will meet all eight of the major planets, plus a supporting cast of moons, asteroids and comets, and a mysterious as yet unseen world way out beyond the Kuiper belt.
