The Universe (Space Travel)

The next episode of the amazing series The Universe continues tonight. The new episode is called “Space Travel.” Here’s a preview…

When man finally broke free of the Earth’s gravitational pull the dream of traveling to other planets became a reality. Today scientists are proposing a bizarre array of technologies in the hope of traveling faster through space: from space craft sporting sails that catch laser beams, to propulsion engines powered by a bizarre entity known as anti-matter. Finally explore the science behind the seemingly fanciful notion of warp-drive and a theoretical particle that can travel faster than light.

With all the anniversaries recently (Sputnik last October, Explorer 1 in January, NASA’s 50th in a few months, and the new plans to return to the moon) a look to the future of just how we get out there is a good thing.

As usual, check local listings.
