ASTRONOMY - THE VERY LARGE ARRAY TELESCOPE

The Very Large Array, or VLA, telescope was built by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory to investigate radio waves from a variety of astronomical objects. This enormous array includes 27 antennas that look into deep space to see quasars, pulsars, remnants of supernova, gamma ray bursts, radio-emitting stars, the sun and planets, black holes, and the hydrogen gas that constitutes a large portion of the Milky Way galaxy. This program takes a look at how the telescope works and some of the magnificent images it produces.

ASTRONOMY: DISCOVER THE ALMA TELESCOPE

The ALMA or Atacama Large Millimeter/Sub-millimeter Array is a powerful radio telescope observatory. The large array probes the first stars and galaxies and directly images the formation of planets. The ALMA is composed of 66 high precision antennas and has a much higher sensitivity and resolution than other telescopes. It has unprecedented sensitivity and resolution, giving astronomers incredibly detailed views of distant objects in space. Based in Chile, South America, The ALMA is an international astronomy facility operated by countries from Europe, North America and East Asia in cooperation with the Republic of Chile. The location was chosen as the home of the ALMA Telescope because a high and dry site is required for millimeter wavelength operations. The Array was constructed on the Chajnantor plateau at an altitude of 5,000 meters. It explores the physics of the cold universe and probes the first stars and galaxies.

COMET - VISITORS FROM SPACE

Comets have been causing fear in the minds of humans for millennia. Now new spacecraft are giving us insights into their composition and behavior. Comets allow us to study what the solar system was like in its formative period. They orbit the Sun in the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud. This program teaches students about comets and helps students understand why comets cause both fear and fascination.

FAR OUT - MEASURING THE UNIVERSE

How far is a star or a galaxy? Scaling and measuring the cosmos is a complex problem. Scientists are integrating mathematical applications and scientific technology to create standards. Distances are so vast they are described in light years the distance light travels in a year. Nearby stars are measured by trigonometry the technique of parallax. Farther out, astronomers use so-called standard candles, the Type Ia supernovae is the standard candle basis. Beyond that the electromagnetic redshift of galaxies reveals their distances.

PLUTO - THE FARTHEST PLANET

Since its discovery in 1930, astronomers have been debating the status of the tiny world at the farthest reaches of our solar system Pluto. In this program, students are given a firsthand look at the scientific process that initially classified Pluto as a planet and then reclassified it in 2006 as a Dwarf Planet. Not all scientists are in agreement with this definition and the future may bring further reclassification. Students will learn the scientific process of categorizing a planet and about this tiny world at the farthest reaches of our solar system.

THE BIG BANG & BLACK HOLES - ZERO TO ZILLIONS THEORY

This programming explores theories of the Universe exploding from an infinitesimal speck to create matter, radiation, time and space. In the first trillion-trillion-trillionth of a second, the cosmos grew a hundred million times to less than the size of an atom. Then, in another instant, the Universe was the size of a galaxy. Now, billions of years later and strung along vast filaments, our Universe has some 50-billion galaxies that continue to expand as stars within them are born, live and die. In the second half of this program, the creation and disappearance of black holes is explored. These occur when a massive star dies. As the star's outer layers cascade into space, the core collapses to beyond the visible and becomes a voracious gravitational trap from which nothing, not even light, escapes.

X-RAY INVISIBLE ASTRONOMY

Much of the cosmos cannot be seen through optical telescopes. But it can be detected in wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from gamma-rays, through x-rays and ultra-violet to infra-red and radio. They reveal cauldrons of starbirth, exploding stars, neutron stars and black holes. Most exciting are Gamma-ray Bursters cosmic flashes as bright as a million trillion Suns. In this program, we learn more about visible light (7 colors and gradations) and infra-red light (outside the scope of human visibility) along with extraordinary images of atmospheric and galactic events.

YONDER TO INFINITY - THE END OF THE UNIVERSE

This program discusses the concept of the expanding Universe. Calculations by astrophysicists show that the cosmos seems to be speeding up. The 50-billion galaxies thought to comprise our Universe are rapidly moving farther apart. As our Sun's energy diminishes, scientists are working to understand the nature of space called mysterious dark energy and dark matter believed to comprise 96 percent of the Universe. With each discovery made by astronomers and astrophysicists, we find there is so much more to learn.

SDESCENT TO TITAN

This is the gripping story of the Huygens probe's journey to Titan, Saturn's enigmatic moon. The final phase of it's epic trip begins with a Christmas Day separation from the Cassini spacecraft. For three weeks the probe closes in on Titan's brooding orange cloud tops. Never before had anyone attempted to land a spacecraft on such a distant world and the tension mounts as the final dramatic moments of Huygen's descent begins. Would the probe's data and images reveal Titan's many secrets? Would there be a signal at all?

SPLANET OF THE RINGS

Girdled by its mighty rings, Saturn is the most recognizable yet least understood of the plants. Seven years after leaving Earth, Cassini, the most sophisticated planetary explorer ever built, arrives at Saturn for a four-year orbital mission. The fate of the entire $3.5 billion expedition depends upon Mission Control being able to thread an unmanned spacecraft, traveling at 80,000 kilometers per hour, through a gap in the rings of Saturn without hitting even a speck of debris. Failure would be absolute; success, an historic moment in the annals of space exploration.

STHE HIGH FRONTIER

Outer space is open for business. It's a booming $50 billion a year industry - and growing so fast that not even the sky is the limit. Few of us give a thought to the myriad satellites bobbing abound thousands of miles above our heads. But watch TV, the internet, weather forecasts, international phone calls and stock market trades. As space becomes increasingly commercialized and militarized, are we allowing the dangers to outweigh the potential benefits?

ASTRO SMILES: LAUGHS IN SPACE

Astronaut Walter "Wally" Schirra, one of America's original Mercury Seven astronauts, and the only one who flew in all three of the nation's pioneering space programs, Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, is the perfect host for this program that looks at the "lighter" side of space travel. Here, between important experiments and duties of the astronauts, we are treated to seeing the often zany side of life in space; where, because of the effects of zero gravity, upside down and right side up are not necessarily so and astronauts literally bounce off the walls.

Review
  • "Highly Recommended! This program shows the lighter side of space flight, and how zero gravity affects such basic things as yoyos, jacks, paper airplanes, gyroscopes, as well as basic human activities like sleeping, eating, and moving around. With the loss of the space shuttle Columbia, a program such as this is important because it shows the human side of working and living in space, and how vital the astronauts and space flight are to the future of the human race." -EMR Online

    TERRESTRIAL CONNECTION, THE

    Directed by Bill Cote, By David S Percy ARPS


    This landmark presentation by Richard Hoagland of the Mars Mission held in February 1992 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York features world-wide evidence that the Cydonia region of Mars represents a new window onto the history of mankind on Earth.

    The findings presented include dramatic links between the controversial Face on Mars and the Great Sphinx on the Giza plateau in Egypt. The evidence extends to recording the detection in December 1991 by Myers & Percy of a specifically-scaled analog model of the Cydonia complex on Earth at Avebury (north of Stonehenge) in southern England.

    The video also introduces the concept of tetrahedral geometry and dramatically links this geometry with the enigmatic and heavily encoded crop circles of the early 1990s in southern England.

    This production is lavishly illustrated with computer-enhanced photographs of the Face on Mars and stunning, easy-to-follow colour graphics which take the viewer on a thrilling journey of discovery.

    Described by one commentator as a "jaw-dropping experience".

    WHAT HAPPENED ON THE MOON?

    Directed by David S Percy ARPS

    Behind the official record of Apollo, has the 'hidden hand of history' recorded vital chapters that rightfully belong in the Apollo account?

    The majority of us believe we went to the Moon in 1969 - it represents a tremendous achievement for mankind, the first time we have landed and walked upon another celestial body.

    But what really happened on the Moon in 1969?

    Five years in the making, WHAT happened on the MOON? An investigation into Apollo.

    This compelling production throws into serious doubt the authenticity of the Apollo missions and features information that challenges the declared abilities of NASA to successfully send a man to the Moon and return him safely to Earth.
