Episode Summary

EDIT
Hot/Cold: Temperatures on Earth/In Space
AIRED:
A solar astronomer explains how the sun produces the seasons. He tells Marc that the sun is closer to Earth in winter than in summer, but the angle of sunlight is far different.

REHASHED FROM THE PREVIOUS FOUR EPISODES: Trini learns about protecting the human body from the cold while climbing a mountain. Lisa brings in Vicky Johnson, an engineer who designs life-support systems for astronauts. Marc uses a popcorn model to show what happens when you heat any object, whether it's solid, liquid, or gas.

ADDITIONAL: Lisa takes a hot-air balloon ride and learns how a motorcycle burns fuel. Marc checks out a solar-power station.

Film insert: Netsilik Eskimos.

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The animation which follows Sarah Jessica Parker's Annie segment displays a thermometer reading both Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The numbers on the Celsius scale are not listed properly, going from 10° to 0° to -10°, then 0° again, then another -10° before the last figure, -40°, gets it back on track.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • (Read the tease and you can tell this show is meant strictly for the Northern Hemisphere.)
        LISA (sighs): Boy, I'm tired of winter.
        TRINI: Me too. We've all had colds.
        MARC: We can't play outdoor sports.
        TRINI: Every time we want to go out, we have to get all wrapped up. Where's the sun?
        MARC: It's weinter. It's farther away.
        LISA: No, it's nearer.
        MARC: What?
        LISA: It's nearer to us in the winter than in the summer.
        MARC: Well, that doesn't make any sense, Lisa. If it were nearer, it would be hotter.
        LISA: I can't explain it. I just know that the sun is nearer to the Earth in the winter than in the summer. I read it somewhere.
        MARC: Prove it
        LISA: How.
        TRINI: Well, we could bring the sun in here and ask it.
        MARC: I don't think that's too practical, Trini.
