Ancient Skies With breathtaking CGI, beautiful landscape footage and some of the world’s most important astronomical artifacts, Ancient Skies looks at the universe through the eyes of our ancestors, charting our changing view of the cosmos throughout history. Take a journey through past visions of the heavens from all over the world, from the dawn of civilization to the recent past. From hunter-gatherers to Edwin Hubble, see the myriad of ways that we have observed and chronicled the movements of the heavens. With a cast of expert historians and astronomers, the science behind the phenomena that our ancestors sought to explain through mythology is explored. Throughout the series, cutting-edge animation is used to demonstrate our ever-evolving understanding of how the universe works and our place in an ever-expanding cosmos.
