Another Programming Alert

NOVA was always a favorite show of mine as a kid.  There was something powerful in its presentation of knowledge -like "National Geographic", as well.  The universe contains these amazing things, and here they are, on display for you to try to understand.

We have some animation in a segment of NOVA: scienceNOW which airs tonight.

The segment was directed by Pamela Mason Wagner.

Christina Riley did all the animation and motion graphics.  There are six little clips within the piece.

The story concerns the development of suits suitable for long distance space travel -like a Mars mission.  The featured design uses tension within the fabric of the suit to apply pressure to the body along the specific points.  We had to illustrate this idea, amongst others.

NOVA: ScienceNOW airs at 8 PM on most PBS stations (check local listings).
