Comet Earth – A pass through debris in a comet’s tail as it passes Earth = 01:18:00

Comet Nucleus – Sun side – A close up view of a rotating comet nucleus with jets and shadows = 00:25:00

Comet Nucleus - A close up view, as viewed from the side and rear of a rotating comet nucleus with jets and shadows = 00:25:00

Tunguska Part 1 – Space view of inbound asteroid passes in front of Sun, heading toward Earth = 00:40:00

Tunguska Part 2 – Inbound rock passes through the outer atmosphere and starts heating up = 00:35:00

Tunguska Part 3 – A view behind asteroid as it plummets toward Earth’s surface = 00:12:00

Tunguska Part 4 – Side view of asteroid as it continues through atmosphere shedding smoke & debris = 00:11:00

Tunguska Part 5 – Inbound asteroid explodes just before reaching the surface in the Tunguska region = 00:34:00

K-T Impact – Inbound asteroid and fragments journey from space to the Cretaceous surface = 00:43:00

Earth
Asteroid – Inbound asteroid journeys toward a destined impact on US west coast at night = 01:05:00

Nemesis – Inbound comets make near misses of the Moon and Earth, eventually colliding = 00:50:00

Earth Ring – Close view of primordial Earth with debris field in a ring plane = 00:39:00

Ring – Moon – Primordial Moon collides with debris as it sweeps through Earth’s ring = 00:28:00

Earth – Ring – Moon – A pass across the primordial Earth – Moon system and debris field = 02:19:00

Planetary Nebula – A pass through the polar ejected material of a dying star, pulling back to witness the outer shell exploding and expanding outward as the nebula evolves = 00:53:00

Super Nova – A distant view of a dying super giant star as it explodes, ripping itself apart, sending shock waves across space, leaving a small star embedded in a nebula rich field of view = 00:34:00

Black Hole – Pan across a distant view of a black hole and its polar jets, slowly falling inward through its throat = 01:04:00

Orion Rendezvous – A 3-D journey into the heart of the Orion Nebula utilizing a high-resolution photograph by Robert Gendler, diving into the Trapezium and a nearby proto star to see the early stages of a solar system in formation = 01:46:00

Galactic Voyage – A journey from the night side of Earth, through the Solar System, outward bound through the galactic arms and exciting the Milky Way, revealing a few of its galactic neighbors = 03:19:00

Galactic Voyage Reverse – The same as above but in reverse, starting outside the Milky Way heading inbound = 03:22:00
