  1. BBC: Discovery

    The Age We Made 4/4 — Gaia Vince concludes her journey through the geological age humans have launched. After climate change and mass extinction, she now explores how cities, manufactured artefacts (from plastic bottles to mobile phones) and chemical pollution might become ‘fossilised’ and incorporated into the geological record. Some are bound to survive in crushed form for the rest of the Earth’s existence. Any distant-future geologist would recognise them as strange features unique in the planet’s 4 billion year rock record, and as evidence of a planetary shift into the new time period, which today’s geologists call the Anthropocene.

  2. Discovery

    last man, First Scientist on Moon — Kevin Fong talks to one of the last two men on the moon, forty years after the final Apollo 17 mission launched on 7th December 1972. As an Apollo astronaut, Harrison Schmitt was special. He was the only scientist ever to visit the lunar surface. The field work Dr Schmitt did among the craters, and the rocks he and his fellow astronauts brought back, transformed our knowledge of the Moon and the Earth. Harrison Schmitt also shares the human experience of running around another planet and explains why he thinks we should go back, and beyond.
