Undiscovered Worlds: A search Beyond Our Sun

UndiscoveredWorlds

This show explores a timeless question: Do other planets like Earth exist?Through the discovery of exoplanets – the hundreds of planets that have been found orbiting stars beyond the Sun – we have learned that our solar system is not alone in the universe and have had to redefine our understanding of planets and solar systems.

With rapidly improving technology and endeavors like the Kepler Telescope, the discovery of exoplanets represents one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our place in the universe?

Lamps of Atlantis

LampsofAtlantis

Our search for the lost continent of Atlantis takes us on a journey through the astronomical knowledge and understanding of the ancient Greeks. How did the constellations get their names? What different patterns did ancient cultures see in the sky? Was Atlantis a real place? Did it really sink into the sea? We will uncover clues to help us solve this age-old mystery.  Narrated by Terry O’Quinn, John Locke from TV’s LOST.

Secret Lives of Stars

SecretLivesOfStarsPoster

Not all stars are created equal. Some are massive. Others are tiny; almost insignificant. The specific characteristics of a star will determine what type of life it will lead, how long it might live and even the type of death it will die. We will witness the amazing variety of stars and peer into their secret lives.  Narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart of TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation and the X-Men films.
