Five fun, but fact-filled documentaries that describe some of the discoveries and major scientific advances of recent years in the deep sea and Antarctica through evocative space images.
See life and work aboard the JOIDES Resolution, the world's largest oceanographic and geological research vessel. The boat permanently sails the Seven Seas, drilling holes thousands of feet deep to study microorganisms beneath the sea floor, with the goal of understanding how the Earth works or why climate change happens. A trip aboard the vessel to share the work of scientists from different countries who live and work there, or to dive into the past until you find yourself surrounded by dinosaurs.
Whales have always interested children and adults, whether because of their mysterious songs, ocean travel in groups or their huge dimensions...It's precisely these dimensions that inspired a group of scientists to study through the human heart through this “huge heart.”
The Shuttle, or Space Shuttle, is one of the most important technological wonders of aviation history. This is the last chance to climb aboard this “dragon” of space to discover all the mysteries of the incredible technology before the adventure ends.
Is it possible to live in the coldest place on Earth? McMurdo, the Antarctic Polar Research Station makes it possible: During the summer it hosts 1,200 people...in winter just 300...90° South Latitude describes this science fortress with all its peculiarities, from scientists' rigorous work, to a greenhouse without soil, to a curious building that functions as a disco...without ignoring the important and amusing presence of penguins in the polar landscape.
This tour in space includes the construction of a huge “Orbiting Laboratory,” and the fun but demanding astronaut training: the sessions at the famous Vomit Comet, where they practice living in Zero Gravity conditions or the famous Houston Pool, with nearly 6.2 million gallons of water, where astronauts train for additional tasks, such as moving vehicles in simulated-weightless conditions.
