Our solar system lies on the outskirts of a vast celestial city, a colossal community of stars, bound together by gravity; the Milky Way galaxy. Today, astronomers are piecing together the evidence which is allowing them to see our galaxy in a new and exciting way.
Tornadoes, hurricanes, snowstorms, lightning and floods - for us these destructive forces are symptoms of Earth's creative energy. The weather on Earth is one of the drivers for life and even the most violent and destructive storms create new opportunities for life to flourish. In our quest to discover if we are alone in the universe, we have recently hit upon a surprising new approach - we shouldn't just look for worlds, we should look for weather.
Each episode focuses on a single engineering specialty, like blasting, underwater construction, forensic engineering, robotics and virtual engineering.
Today's technology lets us study the cosmos as never before. The universe is full of billions of stars, planets and moons. In all this vastness, could we really be alone?
Hard as it is to swallow, cutting-edge theories are suggesting that our universe may not be the only universe. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number of worlds that make up the multiverse.
In this new four-part series, renowned physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world.
In this second episode, they travel from January to the March equinox. Kate Humble gets closer to the sun than she has ever been before, while Helen Czerski visits a place that gets some of the biggest and fastest snowstorms on Earth.
An asteroid or comets may have wiped out the dinosaurs, and could do the same to man.
In this new four-part series, renowned physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Brian is going to let you in on a secret: We've all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe just might be wrong.
The effect of air movement across the Earth's surface in creating climate zones.

An explanation of how the areas near the poles experience ligt 24hrs each day in the summer
From stunning space imagery to in-your-face storm chasing, this series showcases the incredible power of our seasons and weather, and what drives them to both incredible creation and devastating destruction.
Travel through our cosmic neighbourhood as we examine how pieces of Mars ended up in our own backyard and how collisions created our moon and left gashes on Jupiter.
There is a new kind of weather to worry about, and it comes from our nearest star. Scientists are expecting a fit of violent activity on the Sun which will propel billions of tonnes of superheated gas and pulses of energy towards our planet. Solar storms have the potential to close down our modern technological civilisation.
