Infinity Express – Grades 6-12
"Infinity Express" takes the audience on an exciting journey of discovery, from the search for solar systems to the mapping of the Universe.  Then, “How Big is the Universe” surveys distances and sizes of things in the Universe.  How do astronomers know the distances to objects in space?  The program starts with ordinary objects and travels out to the Moon, Sun, nearby stars, through the Milky Way galaxy to the nearby galaxies.  Parallax, radar and comparing brightness of objects measure distances.

Mayan Archeoastronomy – Grades 5-12
In a feast of colors and sounds, Mayan Archaeoastronomy: Observers of the Universe makes a tour of 6 Mayan temples: San Gervasio, Chichen Itzá, Uxmal, Edzná, Palenque and Bonampak where the spectator dives into a Mayan world of knowledge about the importance of the orientations of its temples in relation to the movement of some celestial objects like the Sun, the Moon and Venus.

From Earth to the Universe - Grades 6-12
Experience Astronomy 101 in under an hour.  The splendors of the Universe are revealed in this beautiful program.  Our ancestors used the sky as a time keeper.  Later, philosophers and scientists, from the Greeks to Galileo, began to unravel some of its mysteries.  The invention of the telescope has allowed for still more discoveries.  Fly by all the planets in our solar system, then travel beyond to view the birthplace and death of stars, and still farther to the myriad galaxies in our Universe.

Two Small Pieces of Glass – Grades 5-12
Explores the evolution of telescope technology from Galileo’s experiments to the Hubble Space Telescope and beyond.

The Hot and Energetic Universe - Grades 5-12
The human eye can only see a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Celestial bodies radiate at many wavelengths simultaneously.  The hottest and most violent processes emit at small wavelengths: X-rays and Gamma rays.  Since most wavelengths don’t penetrate our atmosphere, we use orbiting telescopes to observe the Universe.  An international array of satellites orbit the Earth, turning their sensitive instruments towards deep space.  High Energy Astrophysics allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the universe, from the birth of new stars, to supernovae and black holes, as well as observing the merging of whole galaxies.
