The longest-running science series on television, Nova offers an informative and entertaining look at challenging subjects. Whether exploring a galaxy or an atom, the series ventures beyond the numbers and into the personalities responsible for the discoveries, and the social consequences of events in the lab.
A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues, or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland? NOVA explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders.
