The End Of The Solar System

Horizon: The End Of The Solar System aired on BBC2 last night and is now available on BBC iPlayer.

In this film, Horizon brings these predictions to life in a peaceful midwestern town that has a giant scale model of the solar system spread out all over the city. As it ages, the sun will bloat into a red giant star, swallowing planets... as well as half the town. The fate of the Earth itself hangs in the balance. How will the solar system end? Darkside Studios created a wide range of visual effects that utilise a scaled-down representation of the planets, aerial footage and night time situations. Sky replacements, artificial Sun and stars, particle simulations and location maps are each an exciting feature in this compelling instalment of BBC 2’s Horizon.
