COSMIC COLLISION

A radical change from our peaceful night sky, Cosmic Collisions presents the spectacular result of gravity pulling together planets, stars, and galaxies. Here are explosive encounters that ended the age of the dinosaurs and gave birth to new stars, but also created conditions essential for life on earth—the Sun's warmth, ocean waves. Cosmic Collisions provides an extraordinary view of these forces—constructive or catastrophic—that continue to affect our universe.

ASTEROID MISSION EXTREME
Asteroid: Mission Extreme takes audiences on an epic journey to discover how asteroids are both a danger and an opportunity. The danger lies in the possibility of a cataclysmic collision with Earth; the opportunity is the fascinating idea that asteroids could be stepping stones to other worlds – veritable way stations in space – enabling us to cross the Solar System.
The challenges are enormous, but a mission so extreme could ultimately lead us to protect our planet and inhabit others.
Explore what it would take for astronauts to reach an asteroid and how such an adventure could benefit humankind.
