My Favorite Universe
My Favorite Universe consists of twelve lectures taught by Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson, looking at 12 interesting subjects about the Universe. The lectures are divided into four groups, each of which consists of three lectures. The first group (lectures 1 - 3) is about "on being" such as shapes, forces, and density. The second group (lectures 4 - 6) looks at our risks and cosmic catastrophe that we may face in the future - black holes, the death of the Sun, and getting hit by a asteroid. The third group (lectures 7 - 9) discusses topics about how the universe began, how it evolved, and how it will end. The forth and final group (lectures 10 - 12) is about finding the planets like the Earth and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
