Description by Image Entertainment:
A grand overview of the universe as we understand it and how it may evolve in the new millennium, this series reflects the youth and vibrancy of today's astronomers at the cutting edge of science. They scour for clues throughout the solar system and beyond to tell us not only where we've been, but perhaps where we are going. Using stunning, state of the art 3D graphics, The Expanding Universe also animates sequences from the structures of the Big Bang to the anatomy of the sun.
