In this 2 part series Prof Jim Al-Khalili tackles the biggest subject of all. The universe. Through a series of critical observations and experiments that revolutionised our understanding of our world Jim guides us through the greatest cosmic detective story of all taking us from the beginning of the universe to the end time and answering the question: Where did we (the universe) come from and where is it going (/how will it end)?
His story is rooted in the 20th century, of the men and women instrumental in uncovering this cosmic mystery: It is a story of triumph of mavericks; huge leaps of imagination, and indeed serendipity. It is a story of human strength and fallibility, of determination in face of adversity and equal belligerence in the face of evidence… but ultimately it is a tale of the triumph of scientific method, of experiment, prediction and observation.
Jim takes us from Atlantic Island mountaintops, home to the largest telescope in the world, where he gazes into the furthest reaches of space to deep underground where he witnesses an experiment to recreate a moment less than a millionth of a second after the big bang itself, as he reveals what has been called humankinds greatest achievement: understanding how the universe began and how it might end.
