Watch Bad Universe
The universe is a dangerous place. Threats can come from any direction. But pop culture has played fast and loose with the facts, and quite often the things we know are all wrong, and when you're dealing with the universe, ignorance can be deadly.

In each episode, he'll show you the real science behind the mysteries of this planet, our solar system and the bad universe we all live in. It might just save your life.
