Scientists discuss the discovery of Uranus' moon, the half finished Miranda, and describe some if its unique characteristics.
Scientists explain how Neptune captured its largest moon, Triton, and discuss the satellite's geyser plumes.
Got time for a 24-year holiday? Then consider a journey to our most distant and least explored planets, the ice giants Uranus and Neptune. There's only ever been one Earthly visitor into this 'chill zone', the Voyager mission, launched in 1977. What would it be like to follow in its wake, for a human to undertake one of the greatest journeys of space exploration? How would you get there? What would you see? And would you ever survive? Strap yourselves in for an incredible voyage to the outer solar system.
In episode three, take a trip to planetary pin-up boy, Saturn, and not only do you get a ringside seat to the greatest spectacle in the solar system, but a close encounter with two extraordinary moons.
This bold and ambitious program reveals in the starkest terms the amount of energy we use and waste in our homes. An unsuspecting UK family will be disconnected from the electricity national grid for 24 hours, and unknown to them, all their energy needs will be powered from a completely unexpected source - an 80-strong team of cyclists using specially adapted bikes who will try to provide all the electricity they consume in a single day.
With a renewed push to propel humans into the heavens and the last three decades of unmanned interplanetary missions behind us, we now have the legitimacy to look deeply into the solar system to explore what our planetary neighbours offer in terms of destinations for human exploration and discovery. As dawn breaks on a new age of manned space flight, Voyage To The Planets offers a ringside seat to the splendours of the solar system: an astronaut's guide to whole new worlds of possibility.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to leave Earth? To gaze back at the receding blue gem that is our home planet and go where no human has gone before? What strange sights await you? What dangers must you avoid? With five decades of space exploration behind us, we can now begin to answer these questions. Blast-off with Voyage To The Planets: an Australian made documentary series exploring the pleasures and pitfalls of travel to the very alien planets of our own solar system.
A good example of error calculations being used to disprove a theory
Particle physicist and ex-D:Ream keyboard player (remember the hit Things Can Only Get Better?) Dr Brian Cox wants to know why the universe is built the way it is. In What on Earth Is Wrong With Gravity, Brian reveals that he believes the answers lie in the force of gravity. But Newton thought gravity was powered by God, and even Einstein failed to completely solve it.
Mike Disney offers a critique of the standard model of Big Bang cosmology.
Jeremiah Ostriker, Jim Peebles and Vera Rubin discuss their early work on dark matter's role in the universe.
This documentary reveals that we can only account for a tiny percentage of our universe - just 4 percent in fact. Scientists know this 4 percent consists of atoms, but what about the rest? Does 'dark matter' and 'dark energy' really fill the voids?
Every day for the last 5 billion years, the Sun has risen over the Earth. The constantly roiling surface of our nearest star was hidden from human eyes until the days of the Renaissance, when Galileo raised an early telescope to study the Sun's surface. What he discovered challenged the status quo and almost brought the Catholic Church to its knees. This program explores the past, present and future of the Sun's importance to our world.
