Fifty years after man first ventured into outer space, we examine the greatest secrets of the heavens.
In ‘The End of the Earth’, experts discuss how the earth has become an extremely dangerous place to live within the wider universe.
According to many cosmologists, it is only a matter of time before a cosmic force will annihilate the planet. At this very moment, NASA’s top brass and other scientists are arming themselves with the latest technology to pre-empt an apocalyptic attack.
We investigate a number of bizarre, unexplained and terrifying ‘end of earth’ scenarios. We meet scientists from around the world who are racing against the clock to develop technology to detect and defend our planet from apocalyptic demons. The prime suspects: asteroids, comets, gamma ray bursts, the sun and the Big Rip – a mysterious phenomenon called ‘dark energy’ which could eventually rip apart everything in the universe.
THIS IS ONLY THE TRAILER.
