The Milky Way is the galaxy that includes our Solar System, with the name describing the galaxy's appearance from Earth: a hazy band of light seen in the night sky formed from stars that cannot be individually distinguished by the naked eye.
Here are some facts about the Milky Way: it is warped, it has over 200 billion stars, it is really dusty and gassy, it was made from other galaxies, we cannot take pictures of it, there is a black hole at the center, and it is almost as old as the Universe itself.
In this documentary, you can embark on an astounding journey across 100,000 light-years to witness key moments in the history of the Milky Way.
Using cutting-edge science, National Geographic constructs a 3-D state-of-the-art CGI model of our galaxy. Gaze into the heart of the Milky Way on the hunt for super-massive black holes. Witness as stars are born and die.
Fly out and above the plane of our galaxy to understand its true shape and scour its dusty spiral arms for the possibility of life.
