What does it take to explore the last frontier? Segments cover telescopes, Earth's atmosphere, our neighboring planets, and the moon.
  • THE TELESCOPE: Surveys the changes this instrument has undergone, from early models to the Hubble Space Telescope, and introduces Galileo Galilei, the first person to point a telescope towards the heavens.
  • LIFE OF A STAR: Explores the sun as a star from formation to burnout, illustrating the meaning of solar flare, nebulae, white dwarf, super nova, black hole, and neutron star.
  • HEAVENLY BODIES: Travels from tiny Mercury to faraway Pluto to investigate the planets in our solar system.
  • THE MOON: Explains how Earth's familiar satellite makes our oceans move.
