Morgan Freeman Universe television show
Everyone loves Morgan Freeman’s voice, deep, somewhat guttural but always easy to listen to and having that charm and that kind of fatherly air that makes it suitable for expository materials. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that it was none other than Morgan to be presented with the opportunity of narrating one of the most interesting popular science series ever – Through the Wormhole.
The show explores the limits of what we can know about our own universe. The way time and space are linked, the way matter and energy are but facets of the same constant, as well as everything from the most minute of scales to the largest. From the Planck scale to the limit of the Universe, by following the guidance of the show you will become a lot more knowledgeable about the basics of physics, in a way that no other physics class could ever raise your awareness.
But, the greatest achievement is explaining the theories of illustrious minds such as Einstein, Stephen Hawking and many more such as the string theory, branes theory, universes and multiverse and the many theories regarding the birth of the Universe, without ever feeling cumbersome or requiring mathematical skills.
Yes, it is first and foremost a highly entertaining show, especially if you are not very knowledgeable on the modern onset of physics and other sciences, and it can stimulate you to learn more about these subjects.
The show is still running and newer episodes have migrated from a simple, straightforward scientific exploration to ethical issues, the human condition and the important questions about where we are heading and what the future will bring. Therefore, if you’re late to the party, you will still get a really interesting watching experience and you can then go back and watch the initial episodes, released as a DVD set.
