ALL-THROUGH NOVEMBER ON SPACE MONTH, Monday to Friday, 9PM
New Delhi, 29 October 29, 2015: What’s it like to leave earth to explore the unknown? How does it feel to be in space? At times, some images caught by satellites in space defy explanation. The idea of something so mysterious and overwhelmingly powerful has always fascinated humans.
Join Discovery Science’s SPACE MONTH to explore the space and uncover the mysteries of the universe. Airing Mondayto Friday at 9 pm on Discovery Science, SPACE MONTH will take viewers on a voyage to rediscover the universe and its attractions, the Earth orbit and will offer a deeper understanding of the cosmos.
Premiering on November 2nd, SPACE MONTH will chart its journey into the unknown with WHAT ON EARTH? Watching us from space, satellites orbit the Earth at 17,000 miles an hour, capturing images of our world that are breath taking, but some can be bizarre. Such photographs force the question, what on Earth is that? The series will use state of the art technology satellites to find structures and cities lost for thousands of years. One image could be the vital clue to the location of the Garden of Eden, another would reveal the Amazonian golden city of El Dorado, and much more.
Rahul Johri, EVP & GM-South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, said, “Discovery Science challenges viewers to look beyond the known and intrigues them to question everything.
