Discovery Science celebrates ‘Space Month’
MUMBAI: Discovery Science, which aims at making science programming relevant, accessible and entertaining, presents a special line up of programmes dedicating the entire month of March as the ‘Space Month’.
From 1 March at 9 pm the channel will be airing three series – ‘Secrets Of The Universe’, ‘Deadliest Space Weather’ and ‘Cosmic Safari’. These shows delve into the mysteries of the universe, mankind’s exploration of space and close encounters of the third kind.
The programming initiative takes the viewers on a guided tour of the planets to explore the attractions and hazards of visiting the outlandish planets of the solar system.
Said Discovery South Asia senior VP, GM Rahul Johri who is also head of revenue, pan-regional ad sales and Southeast Asia, “Discovery Science continues towards presenting unmatchable content to its viewers. The ‘Space Month’ will give viewers a never seen glimpse of the cosmos and secrets of our universe that is sure to amaze and inspire them. The surreal look at the real deadly weather of space will leave viewers awestruck and imagining.”
The first show follows a trail of energy into the power centres of the universe. Each episode visualises these realms using state of the art animations based on both scientific data and the latest supercomputer simulations.
The second show uses graphics to recreate extreme weather conditions right here on Earth. Viewers will get to watch the cities disintegrating under a hail of Venus’s deadly acid rain and entire skylines are blown away by Saturn’s violent winds that dwarf any storm in recorded history.
The last show leads viewers on a safari through the planet Earth and into the deepest regions of space. Anchored in hard science, cinematic graphics take viewers on a tour of the universe. Viewers will also travel through space to witness evolution as scientists believe it might have occurred and meet the possible inhabitants: a walrus-like creature locked in a moon’s ice age, a giant insect that thrives in low gravity and a flying jellyfish from a planet of gas.
