Smallest planets Yet Outside Our System.
AN ALL-NEW "DEEP SKY"
New Episode Today at 8:00PM ET
with Professor Arthur Kososky
OK, you start things simple with just four ingredients: matter, dark matter,
radiation and neutrinos. Mix it up all hot and dense, cook it up in a Big Bang
and you’ve got the recipe for a gradually expanding universe! That’s the
theory, anyway. It’s Arthur Kososky’s job to prove it! He’s a professor of
physics and astronomy at Rutgers University and he is constantly testing
our ideas about the origins and make-up of the universe.
What can microwaves tell us about the beginning of time? Arthur can
figure out a way to tell us. Don’t fall for just any half-baked idea about the
Big Bang: Ask Arthur what really makes everything tick! Live on DEEP SKY, this Thursday at 8:00PM.

SMALLEST planets YET OUTSIDE OUR SYSTEM
30 or so planets orbiting other stars could be the first planets discovered
smaller than Jupiter. These findings are an important step toward finding
Earth sized worlds, planets with the best chance of containing some form
HYDROTHERMALS CONTAIN CLUES ABOUT LIFE
Hydrothermal vents on the floor of the ocean are among the most hostile
place on earth, with temperatures and pressures up to 200 times that on
land. Yet they are teaming with strange life forms such as 8ft-long worms
and giant clams. These "black smokers" hold clues about possible life on
planets more inhospitable than ours, and about the question of how life
evolved on this one.
SEA LAUNCH FAILURE BLAMED ON SOFTWARE
The Sea Launch Zenit 3SL was doomed by a software malfunction. An
investigation has revealed that a ground software glitch before liftoff
caused the error that destroyed the rocket and the first ICO mobile
