  • Monster Black Holes

    Full Episode

    S 1 : Ep 4 - 12/7/08

    Travel to the edge of space and beyond to discover nature's ultimate abyss - black holes. Explore where they are found, how they begin, and how it may be possible to harness and use the power they produce. In Monster Black Holes, scientists steadily piece together the complex dynamics of a black hole's birth and also examine the growth of a select few black holes to super massive proportions that dominate the centers of galaxies. As a monster black hole swallows everything in its path, it generates energy that shapes the universe around it in powerful ways. Journey into the heart of a black hole and explore what happens to matter when it falls into a black hole, and whether the Milky Way galaxy will one day come to an end when the black hole at the galaxy's center explodes.moreless

With stunning footage from the Kaguya lunar orbiter, Direct from the Moon reveals images of the moon and Earth in spectacular detail like never seen before. Featuring Buzz Aldrin and NASA scientists, Direct from the Moon explores the past, present and future of lunar expeditions from the Apollo missions to the challenges involved with establishing a lunar outpost and innovations under way that will inspire the next generation of space exploration.moreless
  • Five Years On Mars

    Full Episode

    S 1 : Ep 1 - 11/2/08

    When the NASA rovers Spirit and Opportunity touched down on Mars in 2004, they weren't expected to last long-perhaps 90 days, or six months at most. But 90 days stretched into five years, and a short-term science mission searching for evidence of water has turned into one of the greatest adventures of the Space Age. The rovers have trekked miles across hostile plains, climbed mountains, ventured in and out of deep craters, survived dust storms and mechanical failures, and cheated death so often that no one will venture a guess as to how much longer they might last. Five Years On Mars follows this amazing story of two rovers that have explored vast reaches of Mars and may be among some of the greatest explorers in history.moreless
