Ice Worlds (25:07) The delicate balance between ice, water and the existence of life has been a topic of scientific inquiry for generations. In travels to the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet, we’ll examine the ecosystems that exist and thrive there and learn how their survival is connected with our own. Beyond Earth, we’ll see how the existence of ice shapes the landscape and the natural systems on other planets and moons in our Solar System.
Two Small Pieces of Glass (22:51) Galileo’s telescopic observations began a revolution, transforming our views of the cosmos and our place within.
