Synopsis

National Geographic: Journey to the Edge of the Universe
Take an express journey to the edge of the universe as the filmmakers at National Geographic use computer-generated animation to build on images captures by the Hubble Telescope. Beginning on planet Earth, viewers are hurtled into the deepest reaches of space. There are no stops on this flight, and along the way the mysteries of the universe come alive as filmmakers examine the history and science of distant celestial bodies. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

National Geographic: Five Years on Mars
When NASA sent two mechanical rovers - 'Opportunity' and 'Spirit' - to Mars in 2004, it marked a seemingly simple and easy mission: touch down on the surface, quickly comb the area for water, document findings, and return anywhere from 90 days to six months later. But the outing defied everyone's expectations by stretching to five years, and then six. Over this window of time, the mission grew and expanded its geographic focus, and quickly turned into one of the most remarkable and ambitious space adventures in history, as the rovers ventured hundreds of miles across plains, over mountains and into craters, demonstrating remarkable longevity and endurance that helped them "cheat death" time and again. This National Geographic documentary follows the history of the rovers from their initial creation at the hands of NASA scientists to their exploits on the Martian surface, and speculates about how much longer they might last. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

National Geographic: Direct from the Moon
Witness awe-inspiring footage of the moon and the Earth as captured from the Kaguya lunar orbiter in this National Geographic documentary exploring the past, present, and future of lunar expeditions. It's been nearly 40 years since Appolo astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made history by becoming the first men to walk on the moon, and since that time technology has advanced exponentially. Here, Aldrin and NASA scientists discuss the challenges of establishing a lunar outpost and the innovations that could make that possible while reflecting back on the history of the American space program. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
