How Stuff Works is about the stuff that makes the world go ‘round. It’s truly incredible to see the ingenious lengths people go to in order to extract rubber and iron, corn and wheat, and water and salt from the earth. Equally amazing is the number of different and varied products that can be derived from something so fundamental.

How The Universe Works shows you how the cosmos is designed, built and how it actually works. From the beginning of time, stars, galaxies, planets, solar systems and more have been working individually and together to produce all that is and all that we see. See as never before the inner workings of our world, and explore black holes, supernovas, neutron stars, dark energy and all the titanic forces that make us who we are.
The universe is made up of wondrous statistics that detail the incredible range between large and small, near and far, and light and dark – but what any of these inexact terms really describe is still open to debate. We are surrounded by laws that govern everything – determining the colour of the stars, the gravity controlling our solar system and the beginning and end of the universe itself. Want to know how the universe started and how it will end – and everything in between – with such luminaries as Stephen Hawking and Michio Kaku? Watch How The Universe Works.
