- Saturdays at 4:00pm – Forward! to the Moon
- NASA’s 21st century Artemis program, named after the Greek moon goddess and twin of Apollo, is the next step in our mission to explore the universe and land the first woman and person of color on the surface of the Moon. Using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before, NASA uses what they learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars. Join Kari Byron from Crash Test World and MythBusters as she launches on a journey beyond the Earth towards a sustainable future in space.
- Saturdays at 5:30pm – Phantom of the Universe
- From the journey of protons racing through the world’s largest particle collider in Europe to up-close views of the Big Bang and emergent cosmos, Phantom of the Universe is designed to immerse you in the search for dark matter. Narrated by Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, the show reveals the first hints of dark matter, a term coined by scientist Fritz Zwicky. It propels you to unlock the mystery of this phantom of the universe.
- Sundays at 3:00pm – Rising Star
- Go on an astronomical journey from our beginnings through the development of astronomy research in South Africa and discover what the future of astronomy holds for the country. In addition to introducing multi-wavelength and multi-messenger astronomy, Rising Star highlights the many remarkable South African facilities and some of their latest results, including unrestricted views of the 10-meter class Southern African Large Telescope and the most powerful radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere, MeerKAT.
