Description 1 online resource (60 minutes)
Summary It's the ultimate engineering project - but just how do you build a planet, a solar system and a galaxy from scratch, and what happens if you get any part of it wrong? This exciting series draws on specially filmed interviews with the world's top scientists and engineers and, starting with the raw materials of gas, dust, ice and metal, uses stunning interactive CGI to show step by step how a world is put together. A cosmic construction foreman supervises each stage in the building of the earth, the solar system and the galaxy, but like any construction project there will be mistakes - a moon in the wrong place or a little too much iron in the mix. Even minor slip-ups will have surprising consequences ... out of these mistakes will come real insights into what makes our planet and our solar system exactly right for us
