Trivia

When the Venera probes first sent back their images from the surface of Venus, there was wide speculation that there was life on the planet due to irregularities in the images noted as "black flaps" and "scorpions". It wasn't until later confirmed that the anomalies in the images were simply artifacts due to image processing. The surface of Venus is essentially the temperature of the inside of a burning house.

User Reviews

 
Brian Cox is the David Attenborough of Space!
18 June 2019 | by alexshack-30008See all my reviews

Epic! What a journey! We've learned so much in such a short period of time. I keep thinking back to my time in secondary school learning about the solar system and what we knew then compared to now is absolutely mind blowing! The production, music, editing and special effects really make you feel you're there. But Brian Cox is the star of the show, his delivery and narration is 10/10. If you like Planet Earth but are longing for something a little more extraterrestrial, look no further. The Planets will not disappoint.
