Movie Reviews

Physics vs Astronomy
Osam Alwan | Bahrain | 06/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This two part program chronicles the quest to unify the particles and forces in physics, and the quest to understand the origin and fate of the universe.

The physics part showed that quarks were introduced to make sense of the myriads of fundamental particles observed in particle collisions, and that string theory with its advanced mathematics may one day unite all the forces of nature.

The astronomy part revolved around the big bang theory and showed how the universe started from a single point. Although I'm not with or against this theory, I'm still keeping an open mind to all possibilities, check (UNIVERSE-The Cosmology Quest) for an alternative discussion."
Six of Five Stars!

"This is one of the best physics / cosmology films I have ever seen. I would recommend this to any lay person who is interested in these fields. The narrator and the experts are excellent at keeping up the tempo and explaining the science. Additionally, the order in which the topics are discussed is brilliant. The discussion of Heisenberg Uncertainty is particularly excellent (an often poorly covered topic)."
