Hub Of The Planets: 1. The Sun - Covers the birth, life and death of the Sun, interior dynamics and exterior fireworks, sunspots, the corona, solar winds and everything you need to know about our local star. 2. Mercury - The most comprehensive portrait ever of this scorched little planet. Takes a look at double sunrises, craters, cracks and, incongruously, maybe polar ice. 3. Venus - Looking at the planetary hell beneath the clouds, the poisonous, crushing atmosphere, seating heats, volcanoes and a runaway greenhouse effect. Earthspace: 1. Earth - The evolution of the earth and of life, its internal structure, continental drift, day length, seasons, oceans, climate, weather and El Nino. 2. Moon (aka Luna) - The story of the Moon and its birth from collisions, its influence on Earth, Apollo landings and the recent discovery of water. 3. Aurorae And Eclipses - Taking a look at celestial shows, how the solar wind conjures an aurora, lunar and solar eclipses explained and a recent eclipse of the Sun. Mars, Life And Impacts: 1. Mars - Could cold arid Mars be the next place we land? Looking at polar caps, volcanoes, the biggest canyon ever seen and the possibility that Mars once had oceans. 2. Lifequest - Is there life elsewhere in the Solar System? Could life be sustained on Jupiter's moon Europa or even Saturn's moon Titan in the future? 3. Impact! - Exploring the threats of comets and asteroids and what would happen if the spacerock that slew the dinosaurs hit New York today. Outer Planets: 1. Jupiter - Bigger than the other planets combined, Jupiter is a turbulent gas giant with 16 moons. We take a voyage through this mini Solar System. 2. Saturn - Exploring the many rings and moons of this exotic gas cloud and a preview of a landing on Titan, a moon like primitive Earth. 3. Uranus And Neptune - The outer giants. Uranus has a crazy tilt and a chaotic moon called Miranda and Neptune with tempests and a moon spurting geysers. 4. Realm Of Comets - Looking at comets and where the originate, the Oort Cloud and the Kuiper Belt and the possibility that Pluto isn't a planet at all (recently declassified).
