EARTH SCIENCE WEEK UPDATE: Special Alert!
American Geosciences Institute - March 2018
See 'One Strange Rock' on NatGeo TV
From award-winning filmmaker Darren Aronofsky and hosted by Will Smith comes "One Strange Rock," a mind-bending, thrilling journey that explores the fragility and wonder of planet Earth. The documentary series premiers at 9 p.m. Eastern on Monday, March 26, on National Geographic TV.
Filmed across 45 countries, six continents, and in outer space over the course of more than a year, the epic series from Nutopia and Protozoa Pictures redefines Natural History and Science genres. "One Strange Rock" is the extraordinary story of why life as we know it exists on Earth, brought into perspective by the only people to have left it behind - astronauts.
"The story of the Earth as told by the astronauts who orbited it illustrates Earth science in a fresh, compelling way," says AGI Executive Director Allyson Anderson Book. "'One Strange Rock' presents a true cinematic experience for audiences of all ages, and that sets it apart from traditional scientific documentaries. We're particularly excited by the power of this series to inspire a new generation of students to learn how the Earth is intertwined with our lives and culture."
AGI, the organizer of Earth Science Week, is proud to be a promotional partner of the series. Learn more about "One Strange Rock" online.
