Inside the Milky Way

Inside the Milky Way is about you, me, and the history of two hundred billion stars. Our solar system lies on the outskirts of a vast celestial city, a colossal community of stars, bound together by gravity: the Milky Way Galaxy. Today, astronomers are piecing together evidence, allowing us to see our galaxy in a new and exciting way. We are able to take the Earth on an incredible journey through space and time to see how different neighbourhoods of our vast star city would appear if we could visit them close up. Inside the Milky Way tells the story of our galaxy in a clear, dynamic, and exciting way—giving an incredible insight into how it, and everything within it, came to be.

“Inside the Milky Way” premieres Sunday, October 24th at 9P et/pt.

Video Preview: “What Galaxies are Made Of” — The brilliant clouds of color in the Milky Way do more than just inspire awe—they help astronomers decipher the galaxy.

    Wonderful show! I can’t stop thinking about it this morning…The commentator Mr. Bullock was awesome and explained the details so even I a layperson could understand. I loved the part about "dark matter". Will watch again on Thursday night.

    Did anybody see a light the brightness of the surrounding stars at 2 hours and 58 minutes into the program to the right of the mans head. It slowly starts to fall down then quickly shoot towards the ground. Please comment if you see what we saw.
