The Universe - Strangest Things In The Universe (Full Documentary)

Broadcast 2009. Black Holes are one of the most destructive forces in the universe, capable of tearing a planet apart and swallowing an entire star. Yet scientists now believe they could hold the key to answering the ultimate question - what was there before the Big Bang? The trouble is that researching them is next to impossible. Black holes are by definition invisible and there's no scientific theory able to explain them.

Responsible for unlocking many mysteries of the final frontier, the most renowned telescope in the world is in danger of being lost forever. The Hubble Space Telescope has explored the creation of stars and planets, the glory of supernovas and the formation of super massive black holes, charted dark matter and changed forever our understanding of reality itself. Now, it's spiraling toward the Earth, and astronauts are embarking on a dangerous mission to fix it.

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.

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.

If we are not alone, who or what else out there? Is anybody listening? Is physical travel from one star system to another possible?

Our technology is not sufficient to detect any intelligent life form beyond hundred-millions light years. There are over 125 billion galaxies and we may never catch any sign.

If there is a life, how will it develop? Will the mechanics of evolution be similar on the Earth?

Astronomers and scientists like Richard Dawkins explain their arguments on extraterrestrials. (www.youtube.com)

Anticipation is building in the run-up to presentations of the best-yet evidence for - or against - the existence of the Higgs boson.

The famed particle is a missing link in current theories of physics, used to explain how things gains their mass.

Rumours have been swirling about the findings for weeks, ahead of the announcement on Tuesday afternoon.

It is likely to yield only tantalising hints, as the teams do not have enough data to claim a formal discovery.
