How the Universe Works

PREMIERES JANUARY 8 AT 10PM ET/PT

Science Channel’s longest-running and most popular space series is rocketing back after the new year to shed new light on a host of new celestial mysteries. HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS returns for its seventh season as astronomers and experts examine Neutron Stars, Supernovas, Interstellar Space, the Big Bang, and more. The new season blasts off Tuesday, January 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. 

HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS shows the strange force that have and continue to shape the cosmos. The season premiere will shine a bright light on Neutron Stars. They are long misunderstood and perhaps not looked at as closely as other space phenomena, but in the last couple of years scientists have discovered that Neutron Stars seed the Universe with the building blocks of planets and life. 

Among the other stories this season; a journey inside the heart of a supernova to witness the final seconds of a dying giant star; travel deep into Interstellar Space to reveal that space is anything but empty, it is full of rogue planets, speeding stars and lethal cosmic rays; a voyage back to the dawn of time to better understand the Big Bang’s role in the birth of the our universe; and a probe to the depths of the galaxy to hunt for other habitable planets. 

HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS is produced for Science Channel by Pioneer Productions. For Pioneer Productions, Stephen Marsh is Executive Producer. For Science Channel, Wyatt Channell is Executive Producer, who was recently named as a recipient of the American Institute of Physics Science Writing Award for his work on HOW THE UNVIVERSE WORKS.
