New telescope technology has helped astronomers to explore the never-before-seen invisible universe. These modern marvels ushered in a new age of discovery, revealing secrets of greatest enigmas in the cosmos, from giant black holes to supernovas.
Astronomers and researchers are on the hunt for the groundbreaking discovery that confirms extraterrestrial life. Using state-of-the-art technology like the Kepler telescope, scientists examine thousands of exoplanets in search of another Earth.
Astronaut Mike Massimino leads a journey to Jupiter, the biggest and most extreme planet in our Solar System. Using new discoveries and the latest science, he investigates Jupiter's deepest mysteries and if it is actually our Sun's secret twin.
Astronaut Mike Massimino reveals the mysterious secrets of the Moon, a world permanently tied to our our planet. Using new research, he uncovers the mysterious origin of the moon and how it kick-started life on Earth.
This is the greatest story ever told, the creation of everything us. The program investigates how the Universe came into existence out of nothing, and how it grew from a tiny point, smaller than an atomic particle, to the vast cosmos we see today.
This is the story of how stars were made by the universe and how they engineered everything else in that very universe. They changed the universe by spawning further generations of stars, then planets and eventually the building blocks of life.
Black Holes,the most powerful destroyers in the Universe, the most mysterious phenomena in the heavens. For years they were only speculation, now modern astronomy is proving them frighteningly real and showing that they might shape everything we see.
Is our solar system unique? Since the first discovery of a planet orbiting another star, some 280 alien solar systems have been identified. It's only by looking at systems far beyond our own, that we can understand how remarkable our universe is.
There are just eight planets in our solar system, but there could be a hundred billion planets in our Milky Way galaxy alone. This show follows the journey of planets as they grow from grains of dust to the magnificently diverse worlds we see today.
Galaxies, home to stars, planets and us, come in all shapes and sizes. Witnesses the evolution of galaxies; from clouds of cold gas floating in the voids of space 13 billion years ago, to the magnificent spirals that fill our night sky.
Moons come in every possible shape and size. Home to incredible natural phenomena like gigantic geysers and colossal volcanoes, moons also offer perhaps the best chance of finding alien life in the Universe - and they probably exist in the billions.
Stars are not eternal; they are dying in unimaginably large explosions called supernovas. Second only to the Big Bang, these explosions are where creation and destruction meet. Only now have we begun to understand how these wonders in our sky work.
Strange flying objects have been caught on NASA’s cameras and astronauts have reported seeing UFOs. Some of the odd shapes and lights can be identified; others remain a mystery. We’ll reveal NASA footage and interview the astronauts and scientists.
Astronaut Leroy Chao’s spacewalk is interrupted by bright lights flying past. A flying saucer photographed from the Apollo capsule, dark shapes caught on camera shadowing the shuttle. The ideas are science fiction, but the incidents are science fact.
The Viking Lander may have found life on Mars, so why don’t we know about it? What is the most destructive force in the universe? How could a Starship be spotted in the Aurora Borealis? And what are NASA’s mysterious Moon Pigeons?
A chunk of the sun appears to have vanished. An ominous dark craft beneath the Shuttle Endeavour. Hubble spots thousands of unidentified objects traveling faster than light. Are we being watched? Or could we ourselves be aliens from another world?
How the Universe Works shows you how the cosmos is designed, built, and actually works. See as never before the inner workings of our world, and explore black holes, supernovae, neutron stars, dark energy, and all the titanic forces that make us who we are.
Countless mysterious objects have been spotted in the sky and many astronauts have reported seeing UFOs. NASA's Unexplained Files reveals groundbreaking footage and interviews from both astronauts and scientists to explore the idea that there could be life outside of our planet.
What’s it like to leave earth to explore the unknown? What happens when you’re in space and something goes terribly wrong? Secret Space Escapes reveals terrifying accidents, fights for survival, and stories of close calls and near misses by the astronauts who survived them.
Space's Deepest Secrets shares the stories of the men and women who pushed their ingenuity and curiosity beyond the limits to uncover some of the most groundbreaking findings in the history of space exploration.
The Rosetta mission that made historic discoveries on Comet 67P comes to a dramatic end. The spacecraft that brought back incredible photos and ground-breaking science will crash onto the comet’s surface.
Meet the scientists and modern explorers determined to send humans to Mars. As NASA builds its first spacecraft to carry astronauts to Mars and visionaries devise extraterrestrial colonies, our future on the Red Planet might be sooner than we think.
The Planets tells the story of the discovery and exploration of the planets, and reveals the deepest secrets of our neighbors in space.
