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.

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.

The show reveals the first hints of dark matter's existence. It describes the astral choreography witnessed in the Andromeda galaxy. From there, it journeys to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

Journey through one of the most mystifying phenomena in the universe, exploring the latest discoveries and examining recent scientific theories while viewing simulations of black holes and their cosmic effects.

 

The Sun has shone on our world for four and a half billion years. It is our nearest star and our planet's powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather and all life.

The Google Lunar XPRIZE creates opportunities for eventual human and robotic presence on the moon. In Back to the Moon for Good, see the engineering and innovation steps taken by international teams competing to land a spacecraft on the moon.
