Discovery Science brings yet another programme to tickle the curious minds in the country. Secrets of the Earth, the latest show will provide answers to questions that have eluded everyone for ever. It will reveal life’s greatest mysteries and smallest wonders.
Secrets of the Earth is a broad-based new Science series that explores our own planet with same sense of awe and wonder normally reserved for alien worlds. Secrets of the Earth shows Earth in a never seen before way with high- end computer graphics, fun visual analogies and a recurring cast of dynamic experts combined for a stunning new perspective to the world that we think we know.
This series will take advantage of a shift in NASA priorities toward studying our 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 us alive. Reading beyond the realm of earth sciences, we will compare the attributes of Earth to other planets and moons.
Rahul Johri, Senior VP and General Manager- South Asia and Head of Revenue, Pan-Regional Ad Sales and Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “Home to the finest Science programming with a promise to deliver the best to its viewers, Discovery Science is delighted to present Secrets of the Earth. The show is an adventurous glimpse of the earth with stunning imagery of this strange but beautiful planet. Stunning imagery reveals extraordinary canyons of gravity that warp space and time a surface buzzing with a hidden electrical charge and rain triggered by cosmic rays. The program is sure to inform, amaze and inspire curious minds of all ages. This planet has secrets you will not believe. It is an incredible world that scientists call Earth.”
Anything that happens on planet Earth is fair game for this series with the potential to go on for hundreds’ of episodes. Below are just some of the topics that will be explored in Secrets of the Earth.
Rain : Rain is one of the most common weather phenomena on Earth, but scientists are just now unlocking the amazing secrets of how it’s made. Some raindrops form around micrometeorites from outer space, others are created by bacteria that float into the upper atmosphere, create raindrops and ride them back done to earth.
Tsunami : Tsunamis can be caused by underwater earthquakes, landslides, volcanoes, and even asteroids. We show which places on earth are poised to generate the next mega-tsunamis and explore the science of what happens as the wave emerges from open ocean and bears down on land.
