To answer these and many other questions, Professor Brian Cox uncovers some of the most extraordinary natural events on Earth and in the Universe and beyond. From the immensity of the Universe and the roundness of Earth to the form of every single swflake, the forces of nature shape everything we see. Pushed to extremes, the results are astonishing.
