Origin Story – A Big History of Everything

This is the epic story of the universe and our place in it, from 13.8 billion years ago to the remote future.

How did we get from the Big Bang to today's staggering complexity, in which seven billion humans are connected into networks powerful enough to transform the planet? And why, in comparison, are our closest primate relatives reduced to near-extinction?

Big History creator David Christian gives the answers in a mind-expanding cosmological detective story told on the grandest possible scale.
