Mars: The Ultimate Traveller's Guide

It is believed that the dream of landing a human on Mars is coming true. Many scientists believe that landing on the red planet can happen in this generation. Using jaw-dropping imagery from orbit and on the surface, this programme creates the definitive, and brand new, "Atlas of Mars". It reveals our nearest neighbour, not as a dead planet, but as a world of constant change and astonishing variety. Distinguished experts were invited to tell about the cutting-edge technology which may be utilised during the journey to Mars. This is the most comprehensive compendium of maps and information about Mars to date. It is the ultimate traveller's guide of Mars.

Expedition New Earth: Finding a New Earth

The late physicist Stephen Hawking explains why he thinks humans need to colonise another planet – with the dangers of overpopulation, climate change, a potential nuclear warfare and a possible asteroid strike, he concludes that we need to leave the Earth in the next 100 years.

In order to explore a galaxy of Exoplanets in search of one which might be habitable by humans, an Engineering Professor, Danielle, and a student of Hawking, Christophe then travel to the Atacama Desert in Chile to visit one of the world's largest telescopes. Having found a possible candidate, they look at new forms of space technology which might be able to transport us there – travelling to Houston to meet astronaut Franklin Chang Diaz.
