Pioneer Productions’ How The Universe Works Returns to Science Channel for Fifth Season
Pioneer Productions’ hit blue-chip series, How The Universe Works is set to return to Science Channel for a fifth season. The all-new season will ask new questions about how our universe was put together, while revealing the inner workings of our planet, the solar system, the galaxies and the universe itself.
The new season will premiere on Tuesday 29 November at 10pm. The first episode: Mystery of Planet 9, will explore the mysterious ninth planet that lurks in the outer reaches of our solar system. Thought to be ten times the mass of the Earth, experts including Cal Tech astronomer Mike Brown and Planetary Astrophysicist Konstantin Batygin – who discovered this new intriguing planet, will explore whether Planet nine is a volcanic super-earth, an icy mega-pluto or a gassy mini-neptune – and whether it has moons with the potential for life. Other contributors include astronomers Michelle Thaller, Phil Plait, Kevin Walsh and planetary scientists Jani Radebaugh and Dan Durda.
Stephen Marsh serves as Executive Producer for Pioneer Productions and Wyatt Channell is Executive Producer for Science Channel. Mike Rowe serves as series narrator.
