Sci-Fi Science – Galactic Colonization

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the second episode of the second season of Dr. Michio Kaku’s renowned and highly acclaimed documentary series “Sci Fi Science” and explore the exciting possibility of creating a galactic civilization.


In this exciting episode of Sci Fi Science, Dr. Michio Kaku comes up with some very intriguing plans for expanding humanity’s presence throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

Sci-Fi Science – Earth 2.0

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the first second season episode of Dr. Michio Kaku’s Sci Fi Science and explore the exciting possibility of Terraforming the planet Mars.


In this first instalment of the second season of Sci Fi Science, Dr. Michio Kaku comes up with plans for the construction of Earth 2.0 (a second Earth) through the process of terraforming.

Terraforming (literally, “Earth-forming”) of a planet, moon, or other body is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by humans an other terrestrial organisms.

Modern Marvels: Ancient Discoveries

Today on Discovery Enterprise we continue our retrospective of past technologies. But, instead of taking a trip through time of just mere decades, our time odyssey will take us back more than two thousand years. And in the course of this temporal voyage we will examine the ancient antecedents of many technologies that many would consider modern.


Today’s video feature Modern Marvels: Ancient Discoveries, explores the question – Is it possible the ancients were so technologically advanced that they successfully designed the template for today’s computers, planes, trains, automobiles and other engineering marvels?

We will first examine a mysterious device that still baffles many of today’s experts – the Antikythera mechanism.

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient mechanical computer designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was recovered in 1900 from the Antikythera wreck, but its complexity and significance were not understood until decades later. It is now thought to have been built about 150–100 BCE. The degree of mechanical sophistication is comparable to late medieval Swiss watch making. Technological artefacts of similar complexity and workmanship did not reappear until the 14th century, when mechanical astronomical clocks appeared in Europe.

Modern Marvels: Ancient Discoveries will also explore the forerunners of today’s modern rail service, super ships and flame throwers.

The Future of the Milky Way

Today on Discovery Enterprise we explore the future fate of our home galaxy – The Milky Way.


The Milky Way Galaxy, commonly referred to as just the Milky Way, or sometimes simply as the Galaxy, is the galaxy in which the Solar System is located. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group of galaxies. It is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe. Its name is a translation of the Latin Via Lactea, referring to the pale band of light formed by stars in the galactic plane as seen from Earth.

Enjoy this Discovery Channel Documentary about the past, present and the future of our galaxy.

In this instalment we look examine an astronomical phenomenon that has inspired awe and wonder throughout the ages – The Total Solar Eclipse.

Once they were dreaded and thought to be dragons eating the sun but, modern science has dispelled mythology and we now look forward to total Solar Eclipses as one of the most spectacular phenomena in the heavens.

A look at the movements of the Earth, the sun and the moon during solar and lunar eclipses; how humans, if alone in the universe, may be the only intelligent creatures to witness these events; and how astronomers discover planets in other star systems that partially eclipse their stars.


Modern Marvels: 80’s Tech

Today on Discovery Enterprise we take a trip back in time, all the way back to the 1980s and will examine some of the most popular gadgets and fads of that defined a decade.


Join us as we take a retrospective look at Sony’s Walkman, the Rubik’s Cube, the DeLorean DMC-12, and of course the microchip which changed electronics forever.
