Emily Calandrelli, aerospace expert and former NASA employee, goes on an out-of-this-world journey to unlock the mysteries of space. In this Emmy-nominated series she travels to NASA facilities, universities, and research centres aiming to find out the latest theories and technologies in space exploration.
How do scientists find and study alien planets from the safety of planet Earth? Could humans colonise Mars and eventually planets in other solar systems? How do astronauts train for the zero-gravity environment of space without leaving the atmosphere? And, how will robots help us explore places that are too dangerous for humans?
All these questions and more are answered by Emily, explained in a way easy for anyone to understand, whether they are a scientist or just someone interested in the wider universe.

Vuzu (DStv 116)
For 10 years on The Big Bang Theory, you've come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. This single-camera, half-hour comedy gives us the chance to meet him in childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward, and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.
For 9-year-old Sheldon, it isn't easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in a land where church and football are king.
And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.
