(Also available on Blu-Ray)

It is only fitting to have a sci-fi person like Zachary Quinto voicing this Nova "The Planets" five-episode series.  Lending his voice to this amazing journey around the Solar System learning about the different planets, fans of this actor from Star Trek, will find themselves learning things about the planets they never imagined.  Through stunning footage, that will have you rewinding or slowing down the video, you will be captivated to learn about the mysteries of the planets, including their weather patterns, haunting landscapes, and so much more.  

I just got done teaching my girls about the solar system as part of school this past spring, and can say that nothing in this 5-part series was found in books I researched and shared with my girls.  I found the series so interesting, that I had my girls sit for it, after my husband and I watched it. Like my husband and I, my girls were amazed at what they were learning and seeing from extraordinary orbiter, lander and rover captured footage.  My youngest was quick to point out that I didn't share any of what she saw in this series as part of our schooling, and wished I did as it was so interesting. I told I was learning about this stuff for the first time when I sat to watch it, and that is why I was sharing it with them, as I knew they would find it fascinating, too!

If you are into space and astronomy, you will definitely want to pick up the new “NOVA: The Planets,” DVD to get a better understanding of the planets in our Solar System. Each planet has a fascinating story that will have you pondering the thoughts of life on other worlds. :-)

More about this recent PBS Distribution DVD release:

"Narrated by Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), this series takes viewers on a 4.5-billion-year journey through the incredible story of our solar system, which is brought vividly to life in stunning new detail revealed by the latest and most daring space missions.

In five one-hour episodes, “The Planets” combines dazzling CGI imagery, the latest planetary science research, and extraordinary footage captured by orbiters, landers, and rovers to reveal the beauty and grandeur of each planet like never before. The series treats viewers to an unimaginable, up-close look at awe-inspiring sights across the solar system—from haunting landscapes, to colossal weather systems, to strange environments of fantastic scale.

Each planet has a fascinating story - from the rocky inner worlds of Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, to the massive gas giant, Jupiter; to the mysterious, ringed Saturn; to the cold, remote ice worlds of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, and even beyond. The program explores what their extreme features can tell us about how our solar system formed, and asks if they can provide us with clues about the possibility of life on other worlds."
