Sunstruck

Our Sun produces the energy that makes life on Earth possible. How does it do this? What is the Sun comprised of and how does it affect the Earth in other ways? Solar storms are a threat to our very existence, and the eventual death of the Sun will mean the end of our planet. How is this similar to the lives and deaths of stars throughout our galaxy?

Light Years from Andromeda

A beam of light leaves the Andromeda Galaxy and travels across the void of intergalactic space.   On a planet in a nearby galaxy, intelligent life evolves.  Over the course of centuries, the primitives on the planet form cultures and civilizations - and begin to wonder about the universe surrounding them.  When the light beam reaches Earth, some of the early hunters' descendants have just escaped the bonds of their world's gravity, and visited the Moon.
