Dont know if any of you guy's have watched or are interested in this documentary.I have long been interested in space but i found this first episode a bit depressing.The basic theme about the history and ultimate end of the universe is laid out in best guess scenario but at the end of it my thought was the whole thing seems a total waste of time and no real reason for all the matter existing in it being there at all.It exists for no real reason and after several trillion all the stars die and it returns to a dark ever expanding entity !!

Yeah existence is ultimately pointless. I think that's why people came up with religion. I liked watching some of his other space shows, they were interesting so I will give this one a try soon. There are a lot of things that I can't get my head around, like where the universe came from and how there could be nothing beforehand. Maybe we will find out one day.

The fact is, more people are bothered about where to park their car than look up and wonder at the majesty of the universe. 

Ultimately our life spans are so short in the grand scheme of things, theres not enough time to waste it on existential dread lol.

One thing I absolutely love about big budget BBC science programmes is the camera work and production is always absolutely top notch

It was born out of the collapse of the previous universe, a rebound if you will

That's one theory yes, but where did the previous universe come from? Or the one before that? ad infinitum. I can't really accept the concept that it doesn't have a beginning somewhere.

I had a friend who had a theory that when Universe expansion phase was past it would, due to gravity start to shrink and we would live our lives in reverse😀.I didn't fancy that idea much either.

I dunno, wouldn't mind my twenties again, shagging, partying no care in the world, be tough to go through that again 😇
