Destination: Moon

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Documentary, Science, Technology

Destination: Moon

What role will the moon play in man's next attempts to conquer space?

Chapter 1: A Matter of Gravity

Where and how are we going into space post Space Shuttle?

Further travel in space is inhibited by the challenges of gravity wells and the science and cost of developing vehicles that can transcend them.

How can the moon possibly help with this problem and move space exploration to the next level?

Chapter 2: Water - The Big Question

Right now, we know there is water on the Moon. But how much water? Is water largely at the poles?

These are strategic knowledge gaps that scientists are working to fill in, and a resource prospector robot will be launched to the moon in the 2020s to look for the presence of water.

Chapter 3: From Outpost to Colony

The US efforts to colonise the Moon will follow the lunar exploration roadmap, laid out with events taking place over decades. Other countries have plans as well.

How will robots be deployed to work on the Moon? At what stage will people inhabit the environment? What minerals will be harvested?

Chapter 4: Surviving... and Thriving?

Lunar days are about 14 Earth days long, and when night comes, temperatures plummet.

But there are other issues to deal with as well.

For instance, how can we overcome the moon's lack of atmosphere, difficult terrain with abrasive particles, and the effects of cosmic background radiation?

Invisible Nature

Through micro, infrared and slow-motion photography, get an insight into the way plants move, strategize and even talk to each other.

Plants survive and thrive by using different skills than humans.

Take a look at how they adapt to their environments, co-opt insects to help them out and manage to survive in extreme climates and terrain.

Episode 2: Talking Plants

Plants are able to communicate with each other in ways we are only now beginning to understand.

Some plants can differentiate between roots of their "family" and roots of other kinds of plants when they touch underground.

See how plants "talk" to each other and find out what they talk about.

Episode 3: Power of Plants

How have some plants managed to live 5000 years?

They are masters of photosynthesis and have survived on trips into space. In fact, there are now "plantimals".

Perhaps it is time we learned more from plants about our world and how to live in it as partners.
