Live from Space
A broadcast like never before, Live from Space is a live, 2 hour show beamed down to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS). Tune in to watch two ISS-based astronauts, Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata, take you on a tour of the $100 billion dollar space station, 250 miles above the Earth’s surface travelling 4.9 miles per second. Join them as they conduct never-before-broadcast experiments, while demonstrating what it’s like to live in space – all while completing a full orbit of our planet.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
The 13-part series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey follows the iconic ‘Cosmos: A Personal Voyage’, which first aired more than three decades ago. A spectacular series from Ann Druyanand Seth McFarlane (‘Family Guy’, ‘Ted’), hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey invents new modes of scientific storytelling, taking viewers on a heroic quest for knowledge across the galaxy. Each episode presents the most profound scientific concepts in stunning clarity, uniting scepticism and wonder for a truly transcendent experience.
