The latest advances in cosmological thought presented by one of today's most renowned scientists. Program one presents the history of theories on the universe as it is known today. Program two delves into the beginning of the universe
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The latest advances in cosmological thought presented by one of today's most renowned scientists. Program three features the development of the various materials from which matter is created. Program four covers the discovery of "dark matter" which fills the space between stars and galaxies
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The latest advances in cosmological thought presented by one of today's most renowned scientists. Program five introduces the discover of black holes. Program six synopsizes the last 100 years of astronomy
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 2: When and how did the universe begin? Scientists have developed two theories: the Big Bang and the Steady State theories. This program explores the search for evidence to support the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe. It highlights the contributions and theories of Albert Einstein, Georges Lemaitre, Fred Hoyle, Arno Penzias, and Robert Wilson
Seeing is believing ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 1: Knowledge of the universe is built on the foundations laid down by thousands of years of scientific inquiry. This program explores mathematics and how it revolutionized our view of the universe. Recollect Ptolemy's theory of the motion of the planets, moon and sun; Newton's picture of the universe governed by gravity; Einstein's revolutionized theory of physics and Hubble's invention of the telescope that saw the expansion of the universe
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 6: We now know the universe had a beginning and how all the matter formed but there is still one outstanding question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by other leading scientists as they try to answer this question. Includes discussions of inflation theory, quantum mechanics and string theory
Stephen Hawking's universe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 3: Examines what the universe is made of by utilizing particle accelerators to glimpse fragments of the explosive process believed to have generated stars and planets. This episode features the basics: fire, water, air, and gas in addition to more complex findings of elements and matter from the creation of the Periodic Table to Einstein's famous theory of relativity
Black holes and beyond ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 5: Discusses Hawking's specialty, black holes. With the invention of radio astronomy over 50 years ago many astronomical discoveries came to light including ultraluminous quasars, wormholes, black holes and singularities. It was discovered that quasars, bizarre objects billions of light years away with a power output greater than all of the stars in our galaxy put together, shine brightly as matter is sucked into a black hole and heats up due to friction. Such discoveries seem to allow for travel over millions of miles of space or even time travel and have even led to SETI--the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence--looking for stray alien communications
Cosmic alchemy ( Visual )

On the dark side ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 4: At night the stars are seen in the blackness of space. But is the space empty? In the 1950's an American scientist discovered that the stars in rotating spirical galaxies seem to be held together by an unseen force. Vera Rubin proposed the idea that the space between the stars was filled by invisible stuff she called dark matter. Scientists now believe that dark matter could make up an unbelievable 99% of the universe. The race is now on to find this mysterious stuff hoping to determine if the universe will expand forever or end as a frozen desert or contract under the force of gravity into a "Big Crunch."
