Oftentimes, we remain completely oblivious in our day-to-day lives, as we walk outside to see trees, bodies of water, clouds, and blue sky; we remain completely oblivious to the fact that beyond that blue sky and those puffy white clouds, lies an incomprehensibly large vacuum that spans an equally incomprehensible distance in all known directions. We also tend to forget that our planet is in a constant state of motion and on a perpetual trip around our solar system’s star. Those warm summer evenings, the snowy winter nights, and the cool, dry autumns? Thank our planet’s ever-ongoing trip across millions upon millions of miles each year for that. This is what this BBC docuseries, Orbit, explores.
