"Universe: Beyond the Millennium" is a television series observing astronomical phenomena, research, and theories on the universe and its origins.
Narrated by John Hurt.
The documentary premiered in 1999 and presents an overview of the universe as humans understood it at that time, and how we think it will evolve in the next millennium. Using 3D computer generated graphics, the series features animated sequences that offer insight into the Big Bang theory and the anatomy of the sun.
"Stars", scientific studies of our sun and surrounding stars are revealing discoveries that link electric and magnetic weather patterns of the sun with storms that rage on the earth. Similarly, viewers learn how the sun's electro-magnetic properties can close the Toronto Stock Exchange and turn off all the lights in New York City.
In five billion years, our nearest start, the sun, will die, swelling and becoming a red giant. The heat will be so intense the oceans will boil. Our planet will be scorched beyond recognition. The crust will melt, the surface will become an ocean of molten rock, all life will end, in the ultimate armageddon.
