This edition: The Blue Planet
A remarkable exploration of planetary science-the Peabody award-winning series journeys from the arid moons of Jupiter to the frigid waters beneath the polar ice cap. Planet Earth provides a foundation in geology, oceanography, climatology, and astronomy and features the insights of noted scientists such as atmospheric chemist James Lovelock, creator of the Gaia theory and physicist Robin Stebbins, who first detected sunquakes. With stunningly beautiful cinematography and special effects, Planet Earth will inspire viewers to see the earth around them with new eyes.
Perhaps the last great unexplored frontier on earth, the oceans reveal major new revelations as detected by scientists aboard the space shuttle and submerged to the depths of the “middle ocean” to view rare life forms.
