Death: it fascinates, it frightens, and those who face it and survive often look at life in a whole different way. National Geographic’s Moment of Death looks at what happens to us when we die, why dead isn’t always dead, and how mind and the body sometimes challenge science when it comes to the tipping point between life and death.
This National Geographic documentary explores the physical and psychological changes experienced by the human body in the moments before and after death. When does a person really die, and what happens at that precise second when life ends? While the subject both frightens and fascinates, understanding both the science of death and the ways in which our bodies hold it off are key to understanding the complete cycle of human life.
