Andromeda Galaxy up close (00:52)

NASA release the largest and sharpest image ever taken of the Andromeda galaxy by the ESA Hubble Space Telescope showing over 100 million stars. 23/01/15

The ancient archaeological site of Pompeii is pictured in front of Mount Vesuvius in this April 17, 2014 file photo. The contents of hundreds of papyrus scrolls that were turned into charcoal in the eruption of Italy's Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD - one of the great natural disasters of antiquity - have long remained a mystery. That soon may change. Scientists said on January 20, 2015 a sophisticated form of X-ray technology has enabled them to decipher some of the writing in the charred scrolls from a library once housed in a sumptuous villa in ancient Herculaneum, a city that overlooked the Bay of Naples.

Download the software

To play a video or multimedia clip, you need to have the Flash player installed. You can download one for most systems (including Mac OS X) for free if one is not already installed on your system.

Which Speed?

Our automated system will test your connection speed and send the best video stream so it plays smoothly and continuously.

Alternatively, you can manually choose the speed setting that corresponds most closely with your network connection. We produce clips in a range of speeds to deliver the best quality possible-- the better the quality the faster connection you'll need.
