    • DEATH STARS: Explore the threats to Earth from supernovas, gamma ray bursts, and stars that collide.

    • THE DAY THE MOON WAS GONE: Everyone knows that the Moon controls our tides, but did you know that if the moon disappeared, Earth would spin much faster, giving us a shorter day, winds would blow stronger and longer, and life on our planet would be doomed?

    • IT FELL FROM SPACE: Every year, dozens of objects, both natural and manmade, plummet through our atmosphere and crash into the Earth. These messengers from the sky provide scientists with amazing insights into the natural phenomena of the cosmos. Explore the mystery of these objects, some of which have turned out to be pieces of Mars!
