T1 Origins fourteen billion years of cosmic evolution A1 Tyson, Neil deGrasse., Cort, Julia., Klein, Larry, Levenson, Thomas., Pioneer Productions., WGBH (Television station : Boston, Mass.), Channel Four (Great Britain), Unicorn Projects, Inc., WGBH Video (Firm), PB WGBH Boston Video PP [Mass.] YR 2004 SN 9781593751753 1593751753 AB Who would have predicted that a hot spot left over from the Big Bang would eventually lead to our galaxy, the solar system, the Earth, - and to us? Origins explores how the universe and our planet began amid chaos and eventually gave birth to the first stirrings of life. Join cutting-edge scientists on a voyage deep into the Earth to find analogs to the earliest life on our planet, and travel a million miles from Earth with a space probe designed to capture the earliest observable "snapshot" of the Big Bang. Then watch as astronomers test an ingenious new way to detect distant planets that may harbor life, and discover that every atom in our bodies, and practically every bit of matter in the Earth, was made in the heart of stars. Hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, Origins presents startling new findings that attempt to explain just how Earth, life, and the universe all began. - Container.
