Secrets of the EarthHumans may think they know about Earth, but there's a lot about the third planet from the sun that most don't. This series takes a look at some of its aspects -- with which the average person may be unacquainted. Computer graphics and scientists reveal new facts about Earth that include rain triggered by cosmic rays, and canyons of gravity that warp space and time. "Secrets of the Earth" explores this world, providing data and inspiring a sense of awe that people usually feel about other celestial bodies.
S2, EP1 "Death Traps: Quicksand, Whirlpools & Riptides"Quicksand, grabbing unsuspecting victims in a mortal grip; whirlpools, the relentless swirls of water trapping entire boats in their swift vortices; rip currents, the hidden rivers of ocean water sweeping even strong swimmers beyond the waves.
S2, EP2 "Abandoned Places"Volcanic destruction; oxidized auto plants and overgrown homes go under the microscope; seeking to uncover the secrets of earthly repossession.
S1, EP5 "Gravity"NASA satellites have mapped Earth's gravity and discovered mysterious spots where gravity is weaker; how earthquakes change the planet's gravitational field.
S1, EP6 "Goldilocks"Venus and Mars show how inhospitable Earth could have been if things were just a little bit different.
S2, EP7 "Animal Invaders"Burmese pythons in the Everglades, snake-like fish in the Potomac, and killer bees swarming America: a lack of predators helps these invasive species to take control.
S2, EP8 "The Birth and Death of the Planet"The development of Earth from its birth in the solar system 4 1/2 billion years ago through the cataclysmic events that created the planet we know.
S1, EP1 "Rain"Scientists are just now unlocking the amazing secrets of how rain is made; some raindrops form around micrometeorites from outer space, others are created by bacteria that float into the upper atmosphere.
S1, EP2 "Tsunamis"Which places on earth are poised to generate the next mega-tsunamis and the science of what happens as the wave emerges from open ocean and bears down on land.
S1, EP3 "Tides"Explore what drives the strange science behind places like Canada's Bay of Fundy-where water levels rise as much as 50 feet during high tide, and Alaska's Turnagain Arm, where 10-foot tall "bore waves" routinely wash in from the sea.
S1, EP4 "Volcanoes"Volcanoes have incredible effects on the weather; eruptions create localized weather phenomena like acid rain and violent volcanic lightning.
S2, EP6 "Man-Made Earthquakes"Quakes can be triggered not just by forces deep within the earth, but also by giant dams and reservoirs, deep mines and the new technique of oil drilling called fracking.
S2, EP5 "It Fell From Space"The secrets behind some of the asteroids, comets and space debris that have fallen to Earth; the latest technologies to detect space objects before they strike and spacecraft designed to prevent them from attacking the planet in the future.
