When to Watch
It's time for a new look at a very old universe. In its mysteries, we are finding the secrets of our past and the key to our future. This is a history of how we know what we do about space.
Fifty years have flown by since man first ventured into outer space, but the heavens are only now yielding their greatest secrets. Robotic rovers give us eyes on the red rock of Mars. NASA probes slam into comets at hyperspeed. Deep space telescopes capture violent images of the birth of stars and their collapse into black holes. All of these have significantly changed the way we look at ourselves.
As our own planet churns with the effects of global warming, it's natural to look into the heavens and wonder about the rest of the real estate. Is there anywhere else out there that can support life? Or is there truly no place like home?
