Summary

Professor Brian Cox explores how gravity influences events across the universe, discovering why such a relatively weak force dictates Earth's orbit around the Sun - as well as the solar system's movement through the galaxy. He also explains why the gravity of a neutron star is much stronger than that of Earth, and looks back through history to reveal why scientists' research into the power of attraction has given mankind a far greater understanding of the cosmos.
