|S00E01||Mars: The Quest for Life||00/00/0000||Mars is a frozen, hostile wasteland. Dust storms rage across the planet. Temperatures plummet 250 degrees below freezing. The "Red Planet" seems an unlikely place for water, let alone life. But could the basic elements of life exist here, even in this merciless environment? Phoenix - a robot geologist equipped to identify water on Mars - is on its way to find out. Discovery Science presents ‘Mars: The Quest For Life', that reveals the inside story of the Phoenix's harrowing journey. Carried on the space shuttle Delta II, Phoenix must travel 423 million miles to its final destination in the Martian Arctic. Will Phoenix survive the risky descent through the Martian atmosphere? The search for life is on the line. If successful, Phoenix will provide hard evidence of water on the planet and shift our understanding of life itself.|
|S00E02||Everglades National Park||21/04/2014||Everglades National Park is only a one hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Miami, but the park encompasses 1.5 million acres of tropical and subtropical habitat with one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. It was for this very reason that Congress established the Everglades as a National Park in 1934. The park has since been designated as an International Biosphere Reserve, a Wetland of International Importance and a World Heritage Site.At least one million people from all over the world visit the Everglades each year. There are three main entry points: the Gulf Coast Visitor Center, which is closest to Naples and south of Everglades city; the Shark Valley area that can be accessed by US 41 (also known as the Tamiami Trail); and the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, the park’s main headquarters.The Florida Everglades are home to a diverse array of wildlife within the park’s five different habitats: the Hammock, Mangrove, Pineland, Sawgrass, and Slough. Notable Everglades animals include tree frogs, alligators, the American crocodile, manatee, Key deer, otters, and the Florida panther. The park is located along avian migratory routes, so birding is also a popular activity.|
