This brilliant documentary made me understand the concept of universefurther more from the previous documentaries i have already about theuniverse. Brian Cox, as most people already said is involved more inthis subject, but i quite frankly like it, because he explainsconcepts, principles and other factors which occurs in the universewith simple details and in ways which are totally understandable easilyif you tried to listen well. I totally loved this series. The visualsare so good too. If you have downloaded in the best quality, you woulddefinitely feel amazed in the first episode itself, when Brian coxexplains things with grains of sand, in which the sand grains are sodetailed and lovely to watch too. I definitely recommend this series toeveryone who wants to learn about the universe and it's concepts.

The Synopsis for Wonders of the Universe (2011) 1080p
Professor Brian Cox visits some of the most dramatic parts of the globe to explain the fundamental principles that govern the laws of nature - light, gravity, energy, matter and time. With the world's most profound science at its heart, Wonders Of The Universe reveals how the story of humanity is intimately entwined with that of the complex story of the origins of the universe.

Brian Cox opens the series by asking "Why are we here? Where do we come from?" This is a wide-ranging show of 4 hour-long episodes examining big fundamental concepts. The first "Destiny" examines time, entropy, and the eventual heat death of the universe. The second "Stardust" examines the creation and composition of material of the universe. The third "Falling" examines gravity and black holes. The fourth "Messengers" examines light and sound. The show can float from one subject to another. I like his explanation of entropy. The other concepts are fairly basic. The show can be jumpy. In general, the big concepts are compelling and understandable. The questions are so big that the answers can be uncontained.
In the same scope as Carl Sagan's Cosmos (1980), although not quite ascomprehensive, Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe (2011) along withWonders of the Solar System (2010) attempt to place humankind in thescale of the universe and explore some of physical science's moremeaningful discoveries. Cox actually gives homage to sciencevulgarization pioneer, Sagan, in Wonders of the Universe which I willreview here. Although Cox does not tackle subjects like time travel ina daring and direct way like Sagan, he is an eager, likable, scientistwho engages and teaches with appropriate awe and metaphors.
This time Cox is aided by breathtaking HD cinematography, coupled withthe technical prowess of eye-candy CGI and post-production, but thesoul-searching subject remains as the core of the text to leave us inadmiration, wonder and understandably a little perplexed. He explainsthe content and the context well and builds the viewer's knowledgealong the way.
The series as a whole is a success and perhaps bridges the 30-year gapsince Sagan's landmark 13-part series. Episode 1 "Destiny" defines timeand describes the beginning and the end of the universe in a near-complete and cathartic way. It explains entropy, puts our existence inperspective and sets the stage for further topics and questions of theseries. The second episode "Stardust" deals with chemistry from itsorigin to the complex carbon-based human beings that we are and thewondrously diverse world around us. It explains stellar evolution andthe births and deaths of stars. It shows how everything is connectedand creates a case for the continuous recycling of matter in theUniverse.
Episode 3 "Falling" examines gravity, but is the lesser of the series.It does not fall completely short, but is bogged down by twoexperiments (weightlessness - or so-called zero g - airplane and gforce accelerator) and less compelling screenplay and source material."Messengers" ends the series on a high note and looks at light as aproperty, but also as a code for the history and intricacies of theuniverse. It also relates space and time, the Big Bang and present dayquite harmoniously. It demystifies myths, shows infra-red, radio andmicro waves as extensions of the light spectrum smoothly, examines theimportance and apparition of eyes in evolution and leaves us with asense of unity with the universe and ongoing inquisitiveness into ournature.
All in all, the series succeeds in promoting science, awakeningcuriosity and giving deeper meaning to things we may take for granted.It is beautiful and thoughtful. It lacks perhaps some of the detailedobservations a more science savvy audience may expect, but it gives anaccessible solid foundation for one to build further knowledge andexplore on his own.
Wonders of Life (2013) will complete the "Wonders Of" series in a BBCco-production with China's CCTV. Also, Sagan's widow and co-writer willbe involved in a new Fox version of Cosmos called "Cosmos: A Space-TimeOdyssey" to be aired in 2014.
May science live long and prosper.
