Event Details

Screen our recorded session to see exclusive preview clips from NOVA’s upcoming slate with Touching the Asteroid, Can We Cool the Planet, and A to Z and see clips from two new acquisitions: Last Artifact and Power Trip.

Touching the Asteroid

If spacecraft OSIRIS-REx can grab a piece of an asteroid and bring it back to Earth, scientists could gain great insight into our planet’s origins—and even how to defend against rogue asteroids. But NASA only gets three shots at collecting a sample. Can they pull it off? NOVA takes you inside the mission. 1×60 HD

Can We Cool the Planet?

As global temperatures rise, scientists are exploring geoengineering solutions, from planting trees to sucking carbon out of the air to physically blocking out sunlight. But would it work? What are the risks of engineering Earth’s climate? 1×60 HD

A to Z: The First Alphabet

Just as handwritten records changed how societies work, the printing press transformed the spread of information, igniting the Industrial Revolution. How did technologies–from pen to paper to printing press—make it all possible? 1×60 HD

A to Z: How Writing Changed the World

Writing shaped civilization itself, from the trading of goods to tales of ancient goddesses and kings. Follow the evolution of the written word, from millennia-old carvings in an Egyptian turquoise mine to our modern-day alphabets. 1×60 HD

The Last Artifact

Follow the high-stakes race to redefine the weight of the world and uncover the untold story of one of the most important objects on the planet. 1×60 HD

Power Trip: The Story of Energy

Explore humanity’s most important resource by revealing the energy embedded in our water, food, wealth, cities, transportation and war.  6×60 HD
