S01E01 Episode 1 25/08/2008 Now, when someone mentions the word "NASA," what comes to mind? Space? Aeronautics? Astronauts? The moon? Sure, all those things probably come to mind. But have you ever thought about things you use in your home every day? That's right; a lot of things that NASA originally developed for the space program are now being used in our homes today...
S01E02 Episode 2 08/09/2008 On today's program, we are going to be talking a lot about alternative energy sources and how our current way of generating energy is negatively affecting the Earth. Now, unless you've been living in cave somewhere -- maybe you're living under a rock -- you've probably heard tons of talk recently about the changing weather patterns in our world -- you know, like global warming.
S01E03 Episode 3 22/09/2008 We have a great show lined up for you today. First we're gonna talk about NASA's exploration plans, you know, like, where are they headed? Try the moon -- we're going back -- and Mars. Then for all you gearheads out there, we're gonna show you how IndyCar and NASCAR are using some NASA technologies in racing.
S01E04 Episode 4 06/10/2008 Today we've got so many things lined up for you. We're going to talk about technology. We're going to talk about exploration. And we're going to talk about dinosaurs and how they're all related.
S01E05 Episode 5 14/11/2008 On today's NASA 360, we're going to take space exploration full circle from the amazing discoveries of deep space back down to Earth, where scientists are using those same optics to look at our home planet in ways we've never explored before.
S01E06 Episode 6 20/01/2009 All right, some of the talk around NASA's watercooler these days is about going back to the moon. And guess what. Much of the testing and hard work is going on right now. I mean, we already have prototype rovers, habitats, and vehicles built that are giving us a better understanding of what's gonna be needed to make staying on the moon a reality. Now, of course, most of the testing can be done in NASA's labs, but there comes a time when you're gonna have to take that hardware and put it to the test in the field. Of course, NASA's on it.
S01E07 Episode 7 20/02/2009 On this episode of NASA 360, we're gonna explore the connection between the body, the mind, and machine... From tools we'll use for future space travel built to think like us and even look like us.
S01E08 Episode 8 20/03/2009 Today we're on the big island in Hawaii. We're gonna be checking out some cool testing NASA's gonna be doing to get us back on the moon and onto Mars.
S01E09 Episode 9 21/04/2009 Welcome to NASA 360. Okay, right off the top, I got a quick question for you. Where does NASA launch most of its space missions? Well, for those of you that don't know, let me give you a hint. If I said, "Launch at the Cape," would you know it then? Yep, it's Cape Canaveral, the Kennedy Space Center.
S01E10 Episode 10 29/05/2009 Hey, welcome to NASA 360. I'm Jennifer pulley. Let's get this show started right off the bat. What do you think is the highest profile and hardest job at NASA? Well, hands down, it has to be being a member of the astronaut corps, right? I mean, come on. Definitely. At any given Time, there are less than 145 astronauts in the corps, which means only the best and the brightest get the chance to fly. And let me tell you, you certainly have to be one of the best and the brightest to keep up with the demanding training that comes with the job. So what's this training like? Well, today on NASA 360, we're gonna spend some Time finding out about it. We'll also see what it takes to get our astronaut crews ready for a flight.
S02E01 Episode 11 30/07/2009 In our sports-crazed world, finding better ways to compete has become an obsession for a lot of us. Whether it's at the amateur level or all the way to the top levels of the professional ranks, all of us want to improve our abilities. And today technology is making that easier than ever. Welcome to NASA 360. I'm Jennifer Pulley, and today we're going to see how technology that was originally devised to help pilots and astronauts can now be found in sporting equipment that can be used by all of us.
S02E02 Episode 12 22/09/2009 Chances are you've never been to the moon, but whether you know it or not, NASA is part of your everyday life. That's right. A lot of technology and research that was designed originally for space has been transformed into products that you and I use each and every day. They're called spin-offs. Today on NASA 360, we're going to take a look at some of our favorite spin-offs in your home, your city, and your life.
S02E03 Episode 13 27/10/2009 On this episode of NASA 360, we're going to be exploring some of the five senses and how NASA is using them to better understand our world and the space environment.
S02E04 Episode 14 04/01/2010 Today on NASA 360, we're gonna find out how NASA researchers conduct analog field tests to make sure the equipment we're building for next-generation space missions will work correctly, hundreds of thousands of miles away from the comforts of earth.
S02E05 Episode 15 08/03/2010 Today on NASA 360, we're gonna find out a little bit more about how NASA engineers are paving the way to new aeronautical breakthroughs.
S02E06 Episode 16 15/06/2010 On this episode of NASA 360, we're gonna be looking back at some of the programs and people that made NASA so inspirational, and we'll be looking forward to the future to see what new inspirational ideas lie ahead for us.
