Big History turns history on its head, breaks down the walls between history and science, and tells the story of the universe from the Big Bang through today. Crisscrossing through time and space, each episode reveals the transformative relationships between science and history that you never knew existed. For example, most people don't know that they carry the legacy of the Titanic, and even the Big Bang, in their pockets every day in the form of a cell phone. We'll explore 13.7 billion years of history and ask questions like: What is the connection between Egyptian mummies and today's ham and cheese sandwich? Was the American Revolution driven in part by a biological thirst for caffeine? And why does nearly every ancient civilization build massive structures in the shape of a pyramid?
