Through the Wormhole

Science 2010

Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence - the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? Is there a creator? These questions have been pondered by the most exquisite minds of the human race. Now, science has evolved to the point where hard facts and evidence may be able to provide us with answers instead of philosophical theories. Through the Wormhole brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science - Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and more - to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe.

Season 5 - Episode 5

There could be an undiscovered species on Earth unlike anything we’ve ever known. Not in the ocean, but the ocean itself! Its body spans thousands of miles; its heart beats with a one-thousand-year pulse. It could even have an immune system capable of annihilating all other life on earth. Just as our bodies function through the interaction of water with individual cells, including bacteria and other microorganisms, the ocean’s residents might collectively form a super-organism. A recent discovery suggests the ocean is a living being capable of thought. If so, what is the ocean thinking about us?

Through the Wormhole - S1E1

#7 - Is There a Creator?

7.53

Season 1 - Episode 1

It's perhaps the biggest, most controversial mystery in the cosmos. Did our Universe just come into being by random chance, or was it created by a God who nurtures and sustains all life? The latest science is showing that the four forces governing our universe are phenomenally finely tuned. So finely that it had led many to the conclusion that someone, or something, must have calibrated them; a belief further backed up by evidence that everything in our universe may emanate from one extraordinarily elegant and beautiful design known as the E8 Lie Group. While skeptics hold that these findings are neither conclusive nor evidence of a divine creator, some cutting edge physicists are already positing who this God is: an alien gamester who's created our world as the ultimate SIM game for his own amusement. It's an answer as compelling as it is disconcerting.

Every cosmologist and astronomer agrees: our Universe is 13.7 billion years old. Using cutting-edge technology, scientists are now able to take a snapshot of the Universe a mere heartbeat after its birth. Armed with hypersensitive satellites, astronomers look back in time to the very moment of creation, when all the matter in the Universe exploded into existence. It is here that we uncover an unsolved mystery as old as time itself — if the Universe was born, where did it come from? Meet the leading scientists who have now discovered what they believe to be the origin of our Universe, and a window into the time before time.

I cant get enough of cosmos documentaries. This has been one of the best series I've seen in quite some time. These series usually get weak in the later episodes but the topics remained bold and lots of substance. Morgan Freeman narrating is just the cherry top. Stephen Hawkins Universe 6 part series I still think is my favorite.

Season 4 is hidden again. :(

@ghirsch516: You're like me then. =)

So one thing is disputed and that makes it absolutely nonsense? weird logic...

I love this show. Don't know if it is scientificly sound like someone mentioned but it gives me a lot to think and discuss about and that's made it worth watching.

The show however has zero scientific integrity and you can't trust anything on it. Quick checks online reveal that much of the content is being chosen purely for entertainment value even when its provably false. Take the "God Helmet" for instance. It generates a magnetic field one million times too weak to penetrate the human skull and have any effect on the human brain. The "scientist" is simply putting suggestable people into a sensory deprivation chamber and using the helmet as a prop. Why watch this, when there are really good documentaries out that actually care about scientific integrity? P.S. I love Morgan Freeman's work on this series, his presentation is nothing short of captivating, but he might as well be reading from the national enquirer.

Enjoy this but prefer The Universe.

Watching Season 4 episode 1 now. Love this show.

Just finished the first season and am thoroughly enjoying this. Hope they keep this series going! Makes me particularly excited about the Cosmos reboot with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
