NOVA: Finding Life Beyond Earth airs tonight, with lots of planetary stars
Programming note: tonight, public television stations will be airing a new, two-hour NOVA documentary, "Finding Life Beyond Earth." If you do not get American public television, I've been told that NOVA will stream the show from their website after it premieres on TV. The preview (below) looks pretty promising. They have certainly assembled a stellar bunch of planetary scientists to appear in it! (This list came in a promotional email from NASA, so it probably doesn't include lots of equally stellar scientists who appear in the documentary but don't work for NASA):
And my name should be appearing in the closing credits, because I produced a few animations of Cassini images for them. Once I've watched I'll post the animations that they used. However, it's unlikely I'll be watching it live, because it's up against the first game of the World Series. Yay for DVRs!
We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?
