Strip The Cosmos uses stunning CGI animation and character-driven actuality to strip major planets, moons, black holes, stars and galaxies of their gas, force-fields, rock and magma – layer by layer, act by act – to explore their hidden secrets and solve key mysteries surrounding the origins and destiny of the universe

This series explores these and other mysteries by following exciting scientific missions – close up - and using extensive CGI animation to STRIP THE COSMOS of its gas, rock, ice, water and radiation – layer by layer – to explore its structure, origins and destiny.

Comets appear from nowhere and then blaze across the sky in a magnificent display of cosmic fireworks before disappearing into the darkness. 

This film reveals our extraordinary relationship with comets, exploring how these icy dirt balls may actually hold the key to all life on Earth. Stunning CGIanimation tears open the comet to reveal the secrets locked inside its nucleus. We travel back in time to witness the early earth and the storm of meteor impacts that could have brought the water to its oceans.

While they may pose a threat to life on earth, Comets could also be the reason that we are here at all.
