“Mars 1001”

An international crew of astronauts is about to embark on the first interplanetary journey in history, the first manned mission to the surface of Mars.  Reporter Miles O'Brien is reporting live from his Space Headquarters TV Studio in New York while events unfold for the crew on their 1001-day long mission.

We will witness firsthand their brave attempts to put human footprints on Mars and return safely to Earth.  This journey is made possible by the biggest engineering feat ever and loaded with scientific experiments.  The explorers will be extending our knowledge of Mars and will be learning whether or not mankind has a future among the stars.

Experience the thrill of the grandest mission of exploration ever undertaken!

“Extreme Weather”

Climate change is rapidly affecting our land, oceans, and atmosphere.  Extreme weather, driven by the changing climate, gives rise to powerful hurricanes, torrential downpours, and drought, resulting in natural disasters.  National Geographic brings you face to face with Mother Nature at her most dangerous in this film.  Experience the action as massive chunks of ice shear off a rapidly melting glacier in Alaska.  In the Midwest, cameras roll as storm chasers risk their lives to capture data as deadly tornadoes race toward them.  In drought-ravaged California, filmmakers embed themselves with firefighters trying to contain raging wildfires on the front lines.  The film unveils the surprising links between these three areas, demonstrating how small changes in one area can have major effects elsewhere.
