I’m pleased to announce a new sponsor for Universe Today and Astronomy Cast: “The Universe” brought to you by the History Channel. This is a 13-week documentary series about, what else, the Universe.
The first episode starts on Tuesday, May 29 at 9:00pm (8:00pm Central), and it’s called – “Secrets of the Sun”. There’s another showing Wednesday morning at 1:00am.
Here’s the blurb about it:
It is a fireball in the sky, a bubbling, boiling, kinetic sphere of white hot plasma, exploding and erupting. Its size is almost unimaginable–one million Earths would fit within its boundaries. In this violence is born almost all the energy that makes existence on Earth possible, yet, its full mysteries are only now beginning to be understood. From Sun spots to solar eclipses, solar flares to solar storms, the birth of the sun to its potential death, discover the science and history behind this celestial object that makes life on Earth exist.
So make sure you tune in over the Summer. If you’d like more information about the show, check out their special website at: http://history.com/universe
