Once in an eternity opportunity
Review by Sterling R. on 07/17/20 review stating Once in an eternity opportunity
I am such a cheapskate that of all the PBS shows Ive loved, this is the only one I felt compelled to buy. The two hours review all the extra-terrestrial knowledge that has been gained during my lifetime. I want to be able to watch this, periodically, to remind myself how lucky I am to have lived during this speck of time, in which mankind has become so enlightened.

I love anything about space. And this was spectacular. I watched it on the Nova pbs program and decided to order it. It is impossible to remember all the new information Astromomers have collected.

Top Notch Investigative Work
Review by Penny on 07/17/20 review stating Top Notch Investigative Work
An extremely well put together look at how large a role human emotion plays in investing, particularly in the formation of investment bubbles. Confirms what weve known or suspected for years about the real estate investment boom and the key role derivatives played in the crash of 2008. Historical precedent is given for investment bubbles which reaches back to 17th c. Holland. Quite thought-provoking and a must see!

Telescopes and Edge of the Universe
Review by Andy on 07/17/20 review stating Telescopes and Edge of the Universe
As an avid armchair astronomer I enjoyed this program. While I knew most of the astronomical details already, the information on the newest telescopes both working as well as those under construction or contemplated was interesting to me. Ill be ordering the dvd in a couple of weeks.

Astonishing
Review by Spike on 07/17/20 review stating Astonishing
Astonishing. As a layman, Ive followed space issues for some years with keen interest, but this was the first time I felt I really got it -- the immensity of it, the fact of it.

One of the best accounts of the tension between the rational economists and those of us that believe that behavioral influencies strongly affect economic behavior. Rolf Zerges Ph.D.

My grandparents are the elderly couple in this video. My grandmother passed away soon after this episode aired. My grandfather just passed away yesterday and is finally reunited with her. I am so grateful that I can look back and watch this and see them together, holding hands. 3

Theoretical physics can be a little out there. Needless to say I found him to be somewhat boring. Special effects were good.

Convincing but WRONG. It has been PROVEN- Conspiracy!
Review by Scgator2001 on 07/17/20 review stating Convincing but WRONG. It has been PROVEN- Conspiracy!
This documentary is well done. The story is presented in such a way that it appears the most important question is answered: President Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman who fired three shots. And most importantly; Oswald acted alone. But other evidence has been shown to PROVE that the murder was the result of a conspiracy. To understand that PROOF, you first must understand the information such as in this documentary that seeming closes the case. It doesnt. GOOGLE 0.7 Seconds Conspiracy which is the time between two of the shots that were fired. There are free videos on YOUTUBE and VIMEO that the bottom line in this show is incorrect: There was more than one gunman firing. Because a bolt action rifle was used, two shots could not have been fired that quickly. But the information that proves two of the shots were fired BANG-BANG also proves what happened during the shooting such as how many shots were fired, when they were fired and most importantly, where each of the shots were fired from. I was given this show by someone who knew I was interested in the subject.
