Seven Wonders Of The Solar System

Image 1 / 10

Travel from the Sun to the far-out reaches of Neptune as spectacular series ‘Seven Wonders of the Solar System' explores the very latest breath-taking images sent directly from space. Combing dramatic CGI with the very latest scientific information beamed back from the fleet of probes, rovers and telescopes currently in orbit, delve into an alien world where giant ice fountains rise to over 100km and immense volcanoes capable of ripping a planet apart dominate the landscape. This imagery will be the launch pad for a stunning journey to the planets and moons beyond our world, finding the biggest, most bizarre and most powerful natural phenomena. Over five episodes, the series explores how these previously unseen spectacles have dramatically expanded our horizons, revealing more about the formation of planets and their moons. The series also looks at the big picture - how the forces of nature carved out beauty and order from the chaos of space; how our home planet doesn't sit in magnificent isolation but is intimately connected with the rest of the Solar System; and how these connections have created the haven we call Earth.
