A Journey to Our Nearest Stars – Part 1

The universe is full of all kinds of stars – from tiny red dwarves to majestic blue giants. Some of them dimly twinkle for billions of years while others burn up almost instantly by space standards.

Today we are travelling to some of the most exciting ones, with every new star we come across further and further away from our home planet. This journey of thousands of light years will start near our closest star – the Sun. Together with the Parker probe we will brush its scorching corona and take a peek in its fiery depths. After that we will leave our home system to go around Alpha Centauri and check out some exoplanets located closest to the Earth.

A Journey to Our Nearest Stars – Part 2

We continue our journey visiting Betelgeuse and then onto WR102 which is believed to be the hottest star in the known universe.  So hot that it turns all objects in its vicinity into ash.

We look forwards to viewing this exciting and informative film with you
