S01E18 Large, Dangerous Rocket Ships 00/00/0000 NASA scientists aren't the only ones who can play with rockets! Once a year, the most fearless and hardcore of all rocket builders from around the country come together at LDRS and go head-to-head to see who can build the meanest, baddest most powerful rocket around. For five days, more than 2,000 rockets burst into the sky with a billow of smoke, racing thousands of feet straight up in a matter of seconds. In fact, the FAA has no choice but to divert all air traffic around the entire event! This year, Science Channel brings the event to you on July 5 at 9PM and all of the fire and grit that goes with it! What does LDRS stand for? Quite simply, Large Dangerous Rocket Ships. Hey, why complicate a good thing? And who better to host this explosive event than Kari Byron from Mythbusters? This artist, science chick and working mom sees more explosions in a week on the Mythbusters set than most people see in a lifetime! She's right up in the action and takes viewers behind the red tape to find out more about these wacky contestants and their self-made rockets. To make things even more hectic, LDRS hosts four different categories of competitive rocketry: Drag Racing: A wild event where tons of rockets all launch into the sky at once. The first rocket to reach one thousand feet is declared the winner. Think traditional drag racing except, well, vertical and with a lot more fire. Race To 6,000 Feet: Powerful rockets launch in turns attempting to reach at least 6,000 ft. straight up as fast as possible. There are some situations where red tape is actually a good thing. This is one of those times. Stand back, people! Low Altitude: This is one of the craziest events we've ever seen. The competition opens up to rocket enthusiasts and their, let's just say "unconventional" rockets. We're talking things like port-a-potties and washer/dryers strapped to explosives and launching into the sky. The trick is, these crazy flying objects need to l

S255E01 The Dark Side of the Sun 11/02/2017 What would happen if the sun took out our electrical power grid for an entire year? It may sound like the plot of a sci-fi movie, but this doomsday scenario could actually happen. Despite its calm appearance, the sun is a violent place, constantly releasing huge masses of energy known as coronal mass ejections. These storms have hit the earth before. The last big one struck more than 150 years ago in the Victorian era taking out worldwide telegraph service. The impact of a similar storm would be far more destructive in our modern age of hyper-connected telecommunication and total reliance on electricity and electronics. Fortunately scientists and engineers are building the world's largest solar telescope and launching the first ever spacecraft to fly to the sun to help us predict these potentially devastating events - and prepare for them.
S255E02 The Lost World of Pompeii 12/07/2016 Since Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, burying the city of Pompeii, it has been frozen in time. But now, more secrets behind the ancient Roman city are being revealed with the help of new technologies in Science Channel’s Lost World Of Pompeii Pompeii is a delicately conserved attraction that is under constant threat from the wears and tear of extensive tourism, the specter of landslides and the possibility of another devastating eruption from Mount Vesuvius. This all new one-hour special goes behind-the-scenes of Pompeii with a collection of scientists as they use new science to try to finish piecing together the relics of Pompeii’s past before time runs out. Lost World Of Pompeii merges technology with history to reveal a clearer picture of what exactly happened on that day, thousands of years ago when the volcano erupted. The special features a group of experts from around the world who are leading teams of archaeologists, volcanologists, architects and scientists to search for new evidence on what life was like before the day of Vesuvius’s deadly eruption. To bring the buried city back to life, all aspects of society are researched in Lost World Of Pompeii A team of archaeologists and anthropologists use X-ray technology on ancient body casts to gather information on the life that was lived by the persons inside. Not only do these scans reveal information about the subject’s age and their occupation, but they can also be used to digitally reconstruct the faces of those lost – with details accurate enough to determine their ethnic lineage. To revive their wisdom, a group led by Dr. Emmanuel Brun uses a synchrotron – an extremely powerful source of X-rays— to try to see inside a set of ancient scrolls that were scorched shut in the disaster. And to sculpt the structures that kept the civilization thriving, architects aim to create the first-ever complete 3D model of the city.
S255E03 Rome's Buried Secrets 19/07/2016 A team of experts using the latest in 3D scanning technology explore the hidden underground treasures that made Rome the powerhouse of the ancient world.

S255E07 Foolproof Equations for a Perfect Life 00/00/0000 Every day we are required to make decisions about life, and according to some scientists, we generally make the wrong one. Luckily the same scientists that have identified the problem can also help with the solution. In this documentary, scientists, psychiatrists and mathematicians examine everyday issues and give their opinions of how we should successfully approach the decision making process. These members of academia claim that far too often our emotions cloud our ability to make the correct choice. By systematically working through the decision, identifying the factors and weighing out the options, you can come to a logical and often correct decision. Mathematician and author Garth Sundem believes that by using a few simple equations, problems can be solved easily and you can sail through life. Garth believes that by using numbers he can determine if it is time to see a psychiatrist, what recreational hobbies to take up and can even achieve the perfect divorce. His unique problem-solving method is put to the test when Garth hits the road in order to provide and demystify the answers to life's problems with a calculator in hand. Other scientists in the documentary demonstrate how decisions and outcomes can potentially be manipulated and reveal how we often post-rationalise an inconvenient or bad decision.
S00E01 Unfolding Universe 00/00/0000 A team of astronomers and scientists try to pinpoint the location of a strange presence hidden deep in the core of the galaxy. What they find in this mysterious realm harbors clues to the origin of the world and a future course to the galaxy and universe.
S00E02 Star Dreams 00/00/0000 An 85-minute documentary which shows the circles themselves for all to see and presents the top crop circle researchers. Investigating the over-all assumption of hoaxing, balls of light, sacred site connection, media and people's reaction to the phenomena, and outlining the basic understandings arrived at so far. Images of the major crop circles, interviews with top researchers and a narrative line dealing with the mystical aspects of the phenomenon. Many are now coming to believe these mysterious symbols, appearing all over the planet (more than 11,000 since 1980), are a communiqué to humankind allowing a greater human consciousness to emerge. They are here to offer humanity at this time, an opportunity for an expanded consciousness and an understanding of how the world works in the larger context of the inter-galactic community. Science and media have not given the phenomena its due consideration. Now is the time for a careful re-consideration based on the information and insights gained by the many researchers in the field. A feature length documentary by Robert L. Nichol.
