DESCRIPTION:
(from Science Channel's press release, February 2018) Former NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino is back to serve as our tour guide through the universe in the new season of THE PLANETS AND BEYOND, debuting Tuesday, March 20th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel. Each of the eight episodes in the second season takes an in-depth look at everything from Neptune & Uranus, to alien planets and the Sun. Massimino, who flew on two space shuttle missions to repair the Hubble Telescope, provides a perspective on the cosmos that only an elite few can match. The premiere episode, BIRTH OF THE EARTH, is the incredible story of the origins of our world, which reveals that planets like Earth in other parts of the universe must be abundant. Our planet was formed by a series of cataclysms, from the most powerful blast in the universe to a planetary collision that could have destroyed it. Yet without these events, Earth would not exist, nor would we. Could the same extraordinary chain of events have created other earth-like planets elsewhere in the universe, which are inhabited by creatures like us? Also explored this season are Uranus, Neptune and Mercury as well as alien planets, which scientists have for the last twenty years been discovering at an amazing rate. The Milky Way, which is our home galaxy that is made up of 200 billion stars, one of which is the Sun, will also be looked at.
