From Here to Infinity
The question of how the universe will end has confounded science for decades. Will the cosmos expand for ever or collapse in an almighty fireball? The question seemed unanswerable-until last year. A research team claimed they had discovered the universe's ultimate destiny and in the process found a strange energy that could challenge the fundamental laws of physics. Horizon follows scientists on a hunt for the most distant starever seen, astar that exploded ten billion years ago when the universe was young. Producer Sue Learoyd
