Order Out of Chaos [electronic resource]

BBC Worldwide Ltd
Format

Summary
The pleasant order we see in our cosmic backyard was, ironically, carved from a chaotic cloud of gas. This program helps develop an understanding of that eons-long process and its ramifications. Studying Saturn's rings, perhaps the brightest jewel to emerge from the ancient celestial maelstrom, the film points out echoes of early-solar-system physics in Oklahoma tornadoes and an Icelandic lagoon. Viewers come to understand how gravity and other forces that kneaded the primordial gas cloud into shape also created one of the most frenzied and frightening phases in the solar system's history - when a rain of comets and asteroids turned our extraterrestrial neighborhood into an immense shooting gallery.
