Hubble's Enduring Legacy

Hubble's Enduring Legacy

Narrated in English with Chinese subtitles

Since its launch 29 Years ago, the Hubble Telescope has returned images of unprecedented beauty of a dynamic and changing universe. By looking closely at these images, Hubble's Enduring Legacy reveals the findings of astronomers over its remarkable 29 year history. In this hour length special Hubble's most iconic images are bought to life to answer some of the most important questions facing astronomers today. Colliding galaxies, the birth and death of stars, jets of gas thrown out by material crashing into distant suns: these incredible images tech us valuable lessons about how galaxies are formed, what dark matter is and even the fate of the earth itself. Hubble's Enduring Legacy shows how astronomical imaging technology works to show a universe in motion. This is a map of the universe according to Hubble.

Should We Go to Mars?

Should We Go to Mars?

Narrated in English with Chinese subtitles

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing. It was the greatest technological achievement of the 20th century. Since then, NASA's goal has been to send astronauts to Mars. But it is proving far harder than anyone imagined. Some experts believe that human space travel and exploration are critical. But Mars is over 200 million kilometres away, and the effort to land a human on our closest planet risks billions of dollars and the lives of those brave enough to try. Is the possible benefit worth the risk? And is it really achievable?

What Happened Before the Big Bang?

Narrated in English with Chinese subtitles

For more than a thousand years, scientists have been trying to understand where did everything in our universe come from? How did it all begin? For nearly a hundred years, we thought we had the answer: a big bang some 14 billion years ago. But now some scientists believe that was not really the beginning. This show takes the ultimate trip into the unknown, to explore the dizzying concepts of cosmic bounces, rips and multiple universes, and finds out what happened before the big bang.
