Space weekend

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the moon landing, this weekend is space weekend on one of the TV channels we get.

So, I've spent most of today watching shows about NASA's various trips in to space: from the first shuttle launch, to the building of the space station.

I also watched something about the different weathers on other planets: the acid rains of Venus, the storms of Saturn, etc. This show compared the weather to the weather we have here on Earth, and discussed what would possibly happen to our planet if we had similar weather.

Plus, I watched a documentary about the possibility that life used to exist on Mars, and some of it possibly made it to Earth on an asteroid.

All very interesting.

There are more shows on tomorrow. If it's anything like dinosaur weekend was they'll be the same ones, but if they are then I'll just watch them again, LOL!

Nope! They're different shows! Today it's about how the universe works: from the big bang theory and how the universe evolved after it, to what will possibly happen to the universe in the future.

I love those kinds of shows! I watch them on PBS and Netflix streaming. They really get you thinking. Enjoy! :)

Sounds like some cool TV programs!! I've not seen them.

The life started on Earth from a meteor theory is indeed thought provoking.

Yes, it is! From what I understand, the theory is that one of the other planets - they seemed to be suggesting Mars a lot - was once more habitable than it is these days, and that life that was there ended up here (they never did say whether they thought it was intentional or not).
