A revelation of the distant universe, accomplishing through film animation
what even the most far-seeing telescope cannot do. The film explores the
fourth state of matter, the plasma that fills the infinite void between stars
and galaxies. Single atoms in space, or planets as large as the sun, are each
seen to have their own magnetic fields, attracting to themselves streams of
invisible particles just as iron filings are drawn to a magnet. This has the
same awe-inspiring quality as the earlier Universe, with colour
adding to its wonder and dimension.
