Kick Off Your Summer of Space With a "Stellar" Deep Dive
June 20, 2019
As America marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, we are celebrating with a special initiative called Summer of Space. We're excited to bring you six new programs (plus a bunch of older favorites) that will look back at America’s journey into space and show you what we've learned and where we are going. We've got some incredible shows coming.
Today, we launched the first new series in this celestial celebration. It's called Stellar.
In the premiere episode, Matt O'Dowd brings us to the top of Mauna Kea, the tallest volcano on the planet. Unbelievably, right there on the top of the volcano are sitting 13 telescopes from 11 different countries. It's the most important astronomical observing site in the northern hemisphere, maybe even the world?
If you want to get future episodes as soon as they are released, head to Facebook and make sure you have liked PBS Digital Studios. Episodes will also be available on the PBS Video App and YouTube.
