Haut de la page

This collection boasts four superb animated films about the universe and the evolution of comets and stars: Comet: A description of the general phenomenon of comets, and the radical transformations they undergo as they approach the sun. Superb drawings re-create the intergalactic universe with impact and accuracy. Particular attention is given to Halley's comet, which reappears every seventy-six years (12 min. 18 sec.); Fields of Space: An exploration of the fourth state of matter, the plasma that fills the infinite void between stars and galaxies. Single atoms in space, or planets as large as the sun, are each seen to have their own magnetic fields, attracting to themselves streams of invisible particles (18 min. 38 sec.); Starlife traces the evolution of a star from its birth in the depths of a black nebula to its final extinction. Animated drawings are amplified by a dense narrative describing the differing evolutionary processes followed by stars of different masses. The film touches on the creation of elements in the core of stars, red giants, bursters, space-time relationships, and black holes (19 min. 58 sec.); and Universe: A picture of the universe as it would appear to a voyager through space. Realistic animation takes you into far regions of space past Moon, Sun, and Milky Way into galaxies yet unfathomed (28 min. 53 sec.).
