We can't compare anything on earth to the biggest things known in space. The Lymann Alpha blob is a bubble like structure containing countless galaxies -- perhaps the biggest object in the entire universe.
Regions of radio-emitting gas called "radio lobes" could be even bigger. Then there are super galaxy clusters which are hundreds of galaxies merged together due to cosmic collisions.
Discover which is the largest planet, star, star cluster, constellation, black hole, volcano, galaxy, explosions, moon, storm, impact crater and "void" in space. (www.youtube.com)
In "Sex Slaves," FRONTLINE follows Viorel on an extraordinary journey deep into the world of sex trafficking to try to find his wife, Katia, who was four months' pregnant when she left home, and then free her from the violent pimp who now "owns" her. Along the way, the production team takes a rare, hidden-camera look at the various traffickers, pimps and middlemen who illegally buy and sell hundreds of thousands of women each year.
Broadcast (2005) The twenty-first century will be shaped by a revolution in biology that will enable us to read the genetic code of life as easily as we would read a book. We have gained the power to control the destiny of our species and the ability to manipulate and build humans at will. This fascinating new series will take us on an incredible journey into the future of being, and give a glimpse of things to come in the new age. (www.youtube.com)
Broadcast (1992) See how birds, bees, and even barnacles and naked mole rats are driven to reproduce and pass along their genes to the next generation. The Primal Instinct illustrates, sex lives comes in many varieties. Some animals mate for life, while others may spend just a few frenzied seconds with their partner. In some cases, the dad takes care of the kids, while in others the mom does all the work. And in many households, the newborns are left to fend for themselves, and will never meet their parents.

Broadcast (2002) For the first time ever, scientists believe they have gathered substantial evidence that points to a single animal group of creatures that gave rise to all animals, including humans. Researchers such as Cristina Diaz and Mitch Sogin think that the most likely candidate for this "Animal Eve" is a group of creatures that still exist: the sponges. Sponges, members of the phylum Porifera, are considered the oldest living animal phylum. The name Porifera means "pore bearer" in Latin. Sponges are the only animals that if broken down to the level of their cells can miraculously reassemble themselves. These seemingly inanimate creatures are also fantastic pumps, filtering tons of water to harvest a few ounces of food. (www.youtube.com)
Broadcast (2006) In a stunning six-part miniseries narrated by stage and film actor Liev Schreiber, this Nature series presents a compelling new vision of the epic forces that have shaped every aspect of existence on our planet, in Triumph of Life. More than three years in the making, Triumph of Life combines dramatic storytelling with powerful, groundbreaking scientific ideas in a sweeping story about survival and the survivors - the winners, for the moment at least, in an eternal battle.

It makes our modern world go around. We've used it to drive, fly and manufacture our way into the 21st century. But what would happen if the world that so depends on oil -- suddenly ran out? Aftemath: World Without Oil takes you to a planet you'll never see. An Earth without oil. How would we have to change our way of life to live without the product we depend upon so heavily?

A black hole is a region of spacetime whose gravitational field is so strong that nothing which enters it, not even light, can escape. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass will deform spacetime to form a black hole. Around a black hole there is a mathematically defined surface called an event horizon that marks the point of no return. It is called "black" because it absorbs all the light that hits the horizon, reflecting nothing, just like a perfect black body in thermodynamics.
Before 9/11 and 7/7 there were clues in card games, comics, film and TV programmes, of the events that would later take place.
Similarly, the BBC has broadcasted a series imagining a nuclear explosion at the London Olympics.
The series includes several clues that suggest that the 'illuminati' are behind the making of the series and that therefore the events that the series imagines, are being planned to take place in the real world.
There are also clues that suggest the 'Illuminati' are plotting an attack on the London Underground.
Broadcast (2012) Adam Rutherford meets a new creature created by American scientists, the spider-goat. It is part goat, part spider, and its milk can be used to create artificial spider's web. It is part of a new field of research, synthetic biology, with a radical aim: to break down nature into spare parts so that we can rebuild it however we please. This technology is already being used to make bio-diesel to power cars. Other researchers are looking at how we might, one day, control human emotions by sending 'biological machines' into our brains. (www.youtube.com)
