Discovery Science takes its viewers on Space ride

MUMBAI: Come March and Discovery Science will entertain its audience with enthralling series like ‘Secrets of the Universe’, ‘Deadliest Space Weather’ and ‘Cosmic Safari’. Calling it a ‘Space Month’, these series will delve into the mysteries of the universe, mankind’s exploration of space and close encounters of the third kind.  

‘Space  Month’ aims at taking the viewers on a guided tour of the planets to explore the attractions and hazards of visiting the outlandish planets of the solar system. Beginning 1 March, these programmes will be telecast everyday at 9 PM.  

 Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific  senior VP and general manager – south Asia and head of revenue, pan-regional ad sales and southeast Asia Rahul Johri said, “Discovery Science continues towards presenting unmatchable content to its viewers. The ‘Space Month’ will give viewers a never seen glimpse of the cosmos and secrets of our universe that is sure to amaze and inspire them. The surreal look at the real deadly weather of space will leave viewers awestruck and imagining.”

The ‘Space Month’ will kick start with groundbreaking series ‘Secrets of the Universe’ which follows a trail of energy into the power centres of the universe. Each episode visualises these realms using state of the art animations based on both scientific data and the latest supercomputer simulations.

Imagine acid rain that can eat through solid steel, hurricane winds that blow at 1,600 miles per hour, and lightning bolts 10,000 times more powerful than anything on Earth. ‘Deadliest Space Weather’ through its cutting-edge graphics will recreate these extreme weather conditions right here on Earth. Viewers will get to watch the cities disintegrating under a hail of Venus’s deadly acid rain and entire skylines are blown away by Saturn’s violent winds that dwarf any storm in recorded history.

 The unprecedented programme ‘Cosmic Safari’ leads viewers on a safari through the planet Earth and into the deepest regions of space.  Anchored in hard science, cinematic graphics take viewers on a tour of the universe. Viewers will also travel through space to witness evolution as scientists believe it might have occurred and meet the possible inhabitants: a walrus-like creature locked in a moon's ice age, a giant insect that thrives in low gravity and a flying jellyfish from a planet of gas.
