Stephen Hawking's Universe--PBS

This companion site to a six part Public Broadcasting System series that
began October 13, 1997 features a series of essays by _Astronomy Magazine_
associate editor Richard Talcott (the first two of which, Seeing is
Believing, and In the Beginning are available at present). These essays
discuss the great cosmological questions of the origins of the universe.
There are also brief explanations for complex cosmological phenomena
(Strange Stuff Explained) from antimatter to Hubble's Law to wormholes;
short biographies of seventeen giants of cosmology including Copernicus,
Eratosthenes, and Newton; explanations of eleven different universes from
flat earth to steady state to big bang; and unsolved mysteries, where
leading cosmologists discuss these very large, unanswered questions (three
articles are available at present). A Teacher's Guide (Adobe Acrobat
[.pdf] format only) and Ask the Experts sections round out this site. A
link section is forthcoming.
