Cool More sci-doccies (also usually on Explora CU+ in the Shows section)

This thread is a continuation of what was being posted in the Catch Up section, so that all subscribers can read about these shows :-)

I'll start it by repeating what I posted there this morning;


Year Million ends on 181 NatGeo tonight, next week will be the once-off movie-length doccie called Expedition Mars which is about the "Spirit" and "Opportunity" Mars rovers

I'm fairly sure it will be a repeat of what was shown in the past, if so it's brilliant (should be either way ).
No idea if it will be on CU+ though, if a repeat then probably not.

Default Sci-fi docudramas

Thanks for the heads-up Optimist re Expedition Mars. I only found The Year Million by accident when browsing DSTv Now and am thoroughly enjoying it. These types of shows don't seem to be advertised very well.

why is it called S1?
No episode in the next week and no series recording available so it is not a season, it is only one episode.

Possibly the most important space sci-doccie I've ever seen - Expedition New Earth on 184 BBC Earth.

This is already the second and final episode of season 1, we've all (?) unfortunately missed Ep. 1 for now.
Next repeat is late tonight (Sunday), then 3 more with the last repeat tomorrow (Monday) afternoon.
I don't think missing Ep. 1 has any serious consequences.
Unfortunately it's not on CU / CU+.

Presented by Prof. Stephen Hawking, after a slowish start this episode starts to reveal for the first time that it is already now CREDIBLE for us to physically travel to the stars!!!!

For those who won't have had a chance to see the current run of this Expedition New Earth episode, here's a summary of what was revealed.

But first, an update about the Mars Spirit and Opportunity rovers.

WARNING: THE REST OF THIS POST ONLY CONTAINS SPOILERS!


Mars rovers:




Travelling to a "nearby" star:





That's as far as I can get involved.

Expedition New Earth on 184 BBC Earth - the first repeats of S01E01 that most of us haven't seen is @ 16:00 and 21:05 on Sun. 10 December.
No further repeats listed (yet).

Repeats of the earlier mentioned final E02 are not listed (yet).
I probably won't be checking further.
