Secrets of the Earth

Image 1 / 5

Brand new series, ‘Secrets of the Earth', explores Earth with the same sense of awe and wonder normally reserved for alien worlds. The series shows Earth as it has never seen be before, by taking advantage of a shift in NASA priorities toward studying our own planet. Increasingly, satellites intended to study outer space are being turned back toward Earth revealing stunning new imagery of our planet's surface, oceans, atmosphere, gravity, and all the amazing processes that keep our planet and humankind alive. Reaching beyond the realm of earth sciences, the series compares the attributes of Earth to other planets and moons. Is our home planet the richest in precious metals? Or, should our next Gold Rush be on the moon? How do our earthquakes compare to the quakes that rock the sun? How much taller could trees and mountains grow if Earth had gravity as low as Mars'?
