New Delhi: It took millions of years but man is finally starting to understand what makes this wonderful planet so unique. Discovery Science brings new season of its exploratory series SECRETS OF THE EARTH that examines the characteristics of the Earth’s interior, surface and atmosphere.
Premiering on April 11, SECRETS OF THE EARTH will air Monday to Friday at 10 pm on Discovery Science.
SECRETS OF THE EARTH explores Earth with the same sense of awe and wonder normally reserved for alien worlds. The series shows Earth as it has never seen be before, by taking advantage of a shift in NASA priorities toward studying our own planet. Increasingly, satellites intended to study outer space are being turned back towards Earth revealing stunning new imagery of our planet’s surface, oceans, atmosphere, gravity and all the amazing processes that keep our planet and humankind alive.
Reaching beyond the realm of earth sciences, the series compares the attributes of Earth to other planets and moons. Is our home planet the richest in precious metals? Or, should our next Gold Rush be on the moon? How do our earthquakes compare to the quakes that rock the sun? How much taller could trees and mountains grow if Earth had gravity as low as Mars’?
Computer graphics, visual analogies and a recurring cast of expert scientists combine to reveal new aspects of the world you think you know, from canyons of gravity that warp space and time to rain triggered by cosmic rays.
Go deeper into the world of science as Discovery Science encourages viewers to question everything.
