The Universe ~ The Wildest Weather in the Cosmos

A World of Iron Rain

Today on Far Future Horizons we are going to take a guided tour to locales far removed from our home planet where the weather is distinctly inclement. Imagine a tornado so powerful, it can form a planet or how about rain made of iron.

This is not the stuff of science fiction movie, these are actual weather reports from around the universe and it's Earth's weather to the extreme. We are counting down some of the biggest, baddest, meanest, weirdest and wildest weather the universe creates. Fasten your seatbelts; it's going to be a bumpy ride.

The Universe is available on DVD from and the History Channel’s online store.
