Robo-kids Cy, Annie and their dog Armstrong get a lot more than they expected when their field trip to a space museum turns into an actual journey to the Sun, Earth and Moon! Humor, adventure and science combine to make this family-friendly show enjoyable for all ages.

Max (a dog) and a young girl named Tori take the first trip to the Moon since the Apollo era. Along the way, the story sets the stage for the more sophisticated science, including "Phases of the Moon," "Wings in Space?" and "Frisbees and Curve Balls on the Moon."

Imagine the ultimate space vacation! For space travelers of all ages, this search for the best destinations in the galaxy takes us to Pluto, through the rings of Saturn, across the storms of Jupiter and beyond.

Young marine scientist, Anna Cresswell, aboard mini-submersible Odyssea, embarks on a daring voyage into the labyrinth of Western Australia's iconic Ningaloo Reef. Her mission is to witness the annual, synchronized mass coral spawning. Along the way Anna navigates through a maze of spectacular coral structures, inhabited by an abundance of exotic marine life.

The journey to reach the stars began with our earliest dreams of flying and led to landing on the moon. This new show offers a glimpse into tomorrow, and the possibilities of what is to come by way of private space developments and national space programs.

Touch the Stars centers on mankind's probes used in exploration of our solar system and the galaxy beyond. The film traces the path to space through the history of NASA's probes, orbiters, and landers, from the heart of our solar system to the surface of the other planets and moons, to the grand tour of the Voyager spacecraft through the outer planets and beyond.
