Mars in 3D is a stimulating mini-documentary of the Viking lander mission to Mars in the late 1970s. The raw film material was restored to make a presentable stereoscopic presentation with an atmospheric new soundtrack courtesy of Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics.
The Universe: Season Six shifts the focus of the series from hard science to science fiction, pop-science, and religion in what it the most disappointing season yet for The History Channel's popular science series franchise.
Wonders of the Universe is both visually and intellectually stimulating and it should appeal to anyone who likes series like The History Channel's The Universe, even far surpassing that series in the quality of its content.
The Universe doesn't seem as vast in this Season Five release that retreads a lot of familiar territory and leaves off any extras, but its still a highly informative and intriguing series that science fans will love.
