    本集將會帶觀眾去到歐洲中心,見證一個物種在面臨絕種下的冒險旅程,還有一班保育人士如何竭盡所能幫牠們逃過絕種的命運。大鴇的足跡曾經遍佈歐亞大陸,不過時至今日牠們正逐漸消失。在高度城市化的歐洲中,能否為牠們留下一處淨土,成為牠們的避風港?

    電視版本:雙語廣播(粵語/英語)

    From the heart of Europe comes an immersive story, revealing the odyssey of a species, the passion of its safeguards and their endeavors to ward off extinction.


    Bustards used to be widespread all over Eurasia, but today, they are vanishing. The question is: Can a marginal population in densely urbanised Europe become a safe haven for the species while it is in its vast Asian range under such pressure? Surprisingly, yes!

    The race is on to return astronauts to the Moon. This time, not to just plant a flag, but to colonize. How would we accomplish this? And why would we do it? Private companies and government space programs are vying to create the rockets and machines to get us there. Not just to visit. To stay. Some want to mine the lunar soil for untold riches, including a natural resource that could power Earth’s electrical grids for centuries. Others want to try out technologies and techniques that could someday be used to create a colony on Mars. But the Moon is a hostile world. Cosmic rays, moonquakes and meteors are a constant threat to survival. Discover how today’s scientists and engineers are about to take the next giant leap for mankind by colonizing the Moon.

      Leading institutions are preparing robot rovers and flying drones to navigate through unmapped territories, in order to save lives in bold Search and Rescue missions. By “mapping as they go,” these thinking machines generate their own intelligence—allowing them to self-navigate without human input. Additionally, some technologists are coordinating swarms of drones to operate and collaborate together—all with the explicit ambition of improving the efficiency of farming and increasing food production.

      We’ve all seen Cyborgs in Hollywood blockbusters. But it turns out these fictional beings aren’t so far-fetched. In fact, this program features a true-to-life cyborg, who at four months of age, was the youngest American to be outfitted with a myoelectric hand. And at one ground-breaking engineering facility, engineers are developing biotechnologies that can even further enhance high-tech like this by giving mechanical prosthetics something incredible: the physical sensation of touch!

    • 火星任務

      美國大空總署開展的火星任務2020,可能是有史以來最具野心的搜索火星生命行動。2021年2月,探測器首次嘗試於耶澤羅隕石坑登陸,科學家相信這個令人嚮往的古代三角洲地帶,曾經擁有生命所需的元素。若毅力號探測器成功尋找到遠古生命的痕跡,即代表火星曾經跟地球一樣為有水行星,亦意味著太陽系的其他地方,甚至於太陽系外,也可能有生命存在。不過前往耶澤羅隕石坑並非易事,因為該處的巨石及懸崖令登陸困難重重,太空船需以每小時12000英哩的速度進入火星大氣層,但僅得數分鐘時間執行複雜的降落操作,將一架如汽車般大小的探測器降落到正確位置。如成功登陸,毅力號將會仔細搜索該地帶,並收集樣本以送回地球。毅力號上還有一架四磅重的直升機,它將會執行一連串飛行任務,屆時會成為首架於外星飛行的人類飛行器。毅力號於這個旅程,還會測試利用火星大氣製造氧氣的技術,這種氧氣有望可於未來任務,用作燃燒燃料及供人呼吸之用。

      Follow along as NASA launches the Mars 2020 Mission, perhaps the most ambitious hunt ever for signs of life on Mars. For the first time, in February 2021, a rover attempts a risky landing in Jezero Crater, the coveted site of an ancient river delta that scientists believe once held all the ingredients for life. If the rover, called Perseverance, finds signs of life from an age when Mars was a watery planet like Earth, it could mean life is more likely to exist elsewhere in the solar system--and beyond. But getting to Jezero isn’t easy, as the crater’s boulders and cliffs make it a dangerous place to land. The spacecraft reaches Mars’ atmosphere traveling at over 12,000 miles per hour and has a few minutes to execute an elaborate descent maneuver and lower the car-sized rover to the surface in just the right spot. If successful, Perseverance will comb the area and collect samples for possible return to Earth. Traveling onboard Perseverance is a four-pound helicopter that will conduct a series of test flights--the first on another planet. During its journey, Perseverance will also test technology designed to produce oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, in hopes that the gas could be used for fuel--or for humans to breathe--on future missions.
