Program three features the development of the various materials from which matter is created.

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 Wilson523ocn039297071visu19970.33Seeing is believingProgram 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 universe481ocn045954245visu20000.18Stephen Hawking's universeProgram 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 theory461ocn045954043visu20000.18Stephen Hawking's universeProgram 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 relativity434ocn039297708visu19970.25Black holes and beyondHistoryProgram 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 communications363ocn039297356visu19970.27Cosmic alchemyHistoryProgram 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.

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."211ocn123129603visu20050.50Stephen Hawking's UniverseExamines what the universe is made of by utilizing particle accelerators to glimpse fragments of the explosive process believed to have generated stars and planets.
