Part 1: Weather on Mars — Scientists have long wondered what triggers the [what do they devastate?] dust storms that rage acro ss Mars. Travel to the Mojave Desert in the American Southwest, where scientists simulate the 200-mile-an-hour Martian winds to study the effects that harsh weather might have on visiting astronauts.

Part 2: Weather on Jupiter — It is the largest planet in our solar system-a vibrant gaseous ball, one thousand times the size of Earth, raging with storms that last for centuries. Watch as scientists simulate alien weather to help them calculate the ferocity of Jupiter's monstrous thunderstorms.
