Travel through Space with CET and ThinkTV
CET and ThinkTV are preparing for a trip to outer space! This month, two of our shows will cover a phenomenon that hasn’t happen in nearly 100 years and a trip taken that reached further than any human has gone before. Here is what to expect later this month:
NOVA: Eclipse Over America
Monday, August 21, at 9pm on CET and ThinkTV16
Millions of Americans will witness the first total solar eclipse to cross the U.S. in nearly 100 years. The moon will completely block out the sun, showing the outer atmosphere that surrounds our enormous star. Citizens and scientists will marvel at the sight and watch history as it is made.
The Farthest Voyager in Space
Wednesday, August 23, at 9pm on CET and ThinkTV16
For the 40th anniversary, a collection of tales were gathered revolving around the people and events behind one of humanity’s greatest achievements in exploration: NASA’s Voyager mission. With less than the computing power of a cell phone each, the twin space crafts visited the planets of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Sending back images to further our understanding of the vast space around us, these machines will remain in their travels far after human existence.
Also, mark your calendars for these two shows later this year…
