Tim Peake in first look at new series Secrets of Our Universe
The British astronaut's new series promises to uncover the universe's hidden secrets in first look at upcoming documentary.
In a first look exclusive to RadioTimes.com, Peake goes on a journey across space (literally) and time, with some seriously stunning shots teasing what's to come.
Each episode will see Peake investigate a different subject. The first one will focus on the planets, the second one on stars and black holes, and the third and final one on living in space.
A synopsis released by Channel 5 further reveals what kind of questions Peake will attempt to answer: "What are stars made from? What is a black hole? How far have humans gone in space?
"But he’ll also stop to answer all those niggling queries… Why do some planets have rings? Why does Venus glow?"
And, as Peake himself confirms in the first-look above, he'll also delve into whether or not there's life on other planets.
