From the feedback I received (although I guess 4 people isn't really statistically valid) it seems:
-Maybe the facts were not so new to the viewers.
-However, it seems they were reasonably interesting.
-There seemed to be some feeling of 'awe/cosmicness'
-No one really seemed to think about our fate being already decided.
- that idea didn't seem too depressing or seem to make any one feel like responsibility is removed.
-There seemed more support for the idea that the outside world gets in the way of fulfilling potential.
-More people liked the video footage.
-They didn't seem to like the introduction so much.
-They didn't like the repetition
