Journey to the Edge of the Universe

National Geographic presents the first accurate non-stop voyage from Earth to the edge of the Universe using a single, unbroken shot through the use of spectacular CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) technology.

Building on images taken from the Hubble telescope, Journey to the Edge of the Universe explores the science and history behind the distant celestial bodies in the solar system.

This spectacular, epic voyage across the cosmos, takes us from the Earth, past the Moon and our neighboring planets, out of our Solar System, to the nearest stars, nebulae and galaxies and beyond – right to the edge of the Universe itself.

When you finish this video, you will walk away from it with an awareness that you never had before, of the unseen astronomically massive universe that we float around on like a spec of dust in the ocean.

This video takes you on a journey through the universe as if you are watching a Sci Fi adventure. Yet you constantly have to remind yourself that what you’re seeing is really out there.

  1. There was a Canadian version of this that aired on NatGeo narrated by Paul Essiembre. Any chance anyone has a copy of that somewhere. Would really love to watch that version. Thanks,

  2. Is there not something seriously wrong with this documentary? The further away we observe something the further back in time the event happened because it has taken so long for the light to reach us. But the actual event is over, if we could travel as the film shows we would not see the events that happened in the past. They are over, finished. We could never “see” the big bang because its happened 13 billion years ago! This “accurate” film is seriously flawed. And this has nothing to do with relaivity. For example if you traveled 100 million light years away and looked back you would see the oldest light to reach you would be 100 million light years old, you are looking at a past that exists as old light, the actual place has evolved, changed by 100 million years. As an exercise in imagination to venture into the past it works but in reality there is no edge and you canot travel towards the big bang let alone find it. Very odd.

  3. There is another version of this with Sean Pertwee narrating….much better imho. 😉

    • not a big fan of Alec Baldwin but i do like space and understanding our universe any chance you still have a link to the “Sean Pertwee” version?

  4. Get the American Jew TERRORISTS outa SYRIA!

  5. Best documentary, National Geographic’s space programs are amazing, please re telecast all your space related documentaries on Nat Geo Hindi. Give maximum time to this.

  6. absolutely stunning!! And brilliantly narrated. When Nat Geo does something right, it must be said too!

  7. its so big and great
    i jst tnink about it bt it was quite different

  8. fucking amazing!!!

  9. Wow what a fascinating trip through the universe with the brilliant computorised imagery that we have to play with. We can see that it is a deadly vista to explore and filled with wonderous hazards that we can only imagine how deadly it might be. Still it is all an incredible learning experience, if we are smart enough realise it. We should give up on wasting billions of dollars on space exploration and instead, spend it on improving life on earth and on protecting and preserving our environment. If we don’t start to focus on controlling the harmful effects that our civilized, high tech, energy depleting life styles have on our planet then I guess we might as well be living on the Moon…or Venus…or Mars!…what the future does hold can only be seen here on earth, not in space…

  10. What a fantastic documentary. A work of art. If the moderators are reading comments, PLEASE upload this to your science catagory (for all the science and space lovers out there) – “Alien Planet”, a full CG documentary that documents what ‘could’ or ‘might’ happen if, in the future, we send automated machines out into space to explore an earth like planet. It’s epic and needs to be seen by anyone who loves the idea of space exploration 🙂  

  11. What a great documentary. Really beautifully made 😀

  12. Why not upload on Megavideo, It loads fast, quality is excellent no ads and you can bypass time limit very easy

    • I’m from that hell hole and i love your nickname. Same goes to all the nations and nationalists of the world.

  14. This is a MUST SEE, if you like this done by Nat Geo.

    “The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.”
