Plot Synopsis

SPACE'S DEEPEST SECRETS shares the stories of the men and women who pushed their ingenuity and curiosity beyond the limits to uncover some of the most groundbreaking findings in the history of space exploration. The two-hour premiere introduces viewers to the minds behind NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto, the Hubble Telescope and four other past, current and future missions and projects. Carolyn Porco and Alan Stern are among those who put their careers and lives on the line to embark upon missions that resulted in feats ranging from the discovery of water vapor on one of Saturn's moons to the first attempted exploration of Pluto. These men and women, all responsible for new discoveries, give personal firsthand accounts of how they accomplished the seemingly impossible. Each subsequent one-hour episode of Season 1 explores one of the following stories:

Was Einstein Wrong?: Meet the scientists across the world on the hunt for dark energy, an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of space and may be accelerating the expansion of the universe.

Death of the Solar System: An exploration of the dramatic fate of our future descendants, the technology they'll need to survive the end of this world billions of years from now and our options for colonizing and starting again on a new planet somewhere far from Earth.

Alien Oceans: A soaring quest through the solar system's exotic and hidden water realms, from the deep seas below the icy crust of Europa to the vast prehistoric oceans that once existed on Mars billions of years ago.

Secret History of the Voyager Mission: Voyager has had a profound effect on our knowledge of the cosmos. Its mission was supposed to last five years but remains ongoing, fundamentally changing our understanding of the solar system. Featuring contributions from key scientists, we'll explore what's been achieved and what happens next.

The Plot Against Gravity: The story of how a large aerospace company, BAE Systems, began a secret project to counter the force of gravity while NASA simultaneously ran a similar 'Breakthrough Propulsion Physics' program.
