Don't miss NOVA tonight at 8pm!
The episode is titled "Earth From Space" and it's a groundbreaking two-hour special that reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet.
NOVA producers worked with NASA scientists and used satellite data to transform our planet into dazzling visual sequences. In tonight's epsiode, we'll see all of the intricate and surprising forces that sustain life on earth. We'll see how dust blown from the Sahara fertilizes the Amazon; how a vast submarine "waterfall" off Antarctica helps drive ocean currents around the world; and how the sun's heating up of the southern Atlantic gives birth to a colossally powerful hurricane.
From the microscopic world of water molecules vaporizing over the ocean to the magnetic field that is bigger than Earth itself, the show reveals the astonishing beauty and complexity of our dynamic planet.
Now, after that description, how could you miss it?! Okay, if you DO miss it, tune in Saturday morning at 5am or Saturday afternoon at 3pm for encore broadcasts.
