SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ASTRONOMY & SPACE: 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.

EARTH SCIENCE 2: THE EXPANDING UNIVERSE/LIVING IN SPACE

The Expanding Universe
This two-part program will be an informative and inspiring introduction to modern astronomy.

Part 1. A Brief History of Astronomy. Students will learn of the great change during the Renaissance when pioneers like Galileo and Newton launched the scientific revolution. They will also learn about the modern pioneers who first listened in on the Big Bang.

Part 2. Planets, Stars and Galaxies. Using video from NASA and new photos from the Hubble telescope, students will learn where our earth is in space.

Living in Space
Once upon a time life took a big step forward, moving out of the sea and onto the land. Today humankind is taking an equally big step outwards, living in space. As the Russian space visionary, Constantin Tsiolkovskii said, "The earth is the cradle of the mind, but you cannot live in the cradle forever."

Part 1 presents a brief history fo space exploration to date.

Part 2 is named for teacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe. Her words, "I touch the future. I teach," provide the keynote for this dramatic leap into the future of space colonies.

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 íV 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.
