Abstract:

"95 worlds & counting: Go where the real action is ... the moons! Once dismissed as insignificant ice-balls, we now know they are anything but boring. Visit Jupiter's Io-a veritable fireball-and Neptune's Triton-where even the air is frozen solid-and the rest of our solar system's Lunar wonders."--Container.

"If we had no moon: Imagine a moonless weather report-blizzards in the Sahara, floodwaters swallowing the Pyramids, 90-degree temperatures in Antarctica. Scientists use the latest computer data to show how an ancient rogue planet, Orpheus, collided with the earth millions of years ago to create our moon. It may have been the best thing that ever happened to us."--Container.

"Day the earth nearly died: Two hundred fifty million years ago, before the time of dinosaurs, life on earth flourished. Then came the mysterious Permian mass extinction and the disappearance of 95 percent of all species. Watch as scientists work to shed light on this catastrophic event and the massive meteor strike that may have caused it."--Container.

"Unfolding universe: Join a team of astronomers and scientists as they try to pinpoint the location of a starange presence deep in the core of the galaxy. Their findings may hold clues to the origin of our planet and provide insight into the future course of the entire universe."--Container.

"Understanding the universe: Take a journey through space as astronomers and astrophysicists probe light-years beyond the Milky Way, using graphic models and state-of-the-art computer animation to explore the complex theories of the cosmos. Listen to echoes of the Big Bang, learn how black holes could actually be "worm holes" to other worlds, and see what the "red shift" of stars tells us about the age of our universe."--Container.
