Bad Universe

‘Bad Universe' is presented by Phil Plait (phD, Astronomy) and he is on a mission to debunk all the junk science out there and reveal the truth. In each episode of this three-part series, he will show you the real science behind the mysteries of this planet, our solar system and the bad universe we all live in. In episode one ‘Asteroid Apocalypse' Phil investigates the possibility that an asteroid bigger than Mount Everest could slam into Earth with catastrophic consequences just as it did 65 million years ago. He tests some explosive measures, including the largest detonation ever filmed specifically for a science documentary that may just save our planet.
