We have a poll going on about the ‘sweet spot’ documentary length. Violent Universe offers something for everyone. This 3 hour + documentary is divided up into 5-10 minute bites; allowing you to sit back and learn over the course of an evening – or knock back a couple of videos and call it a night. Violent Universe leaps into the future. Five billion years from today the universe will be a very different place. You will be a distant memory, as will your thousands of potential descendents. Hubblecast uses the brilliant images from the Hubble Telescope to show the violence and death that exists in our universe. The carnage of dying stars form the building blocks of matter. New solar system sprout from the unspooling chaos of galaxies that die out.
In our Galactic Center is nestled the closest of the supermassive black holes – and the largest known to humankind.

Enjoy these 34 videos. You can devour them all at once or saver them slowly. That’s up to you. I’m leaving the universe in your hands.
