This two-hour special provides a new window upon our little corner of the universe, courtesy of cutting-edge technology that turns raw satellite data into computer-generated imagery to depict natural events. Through the satellite images, the invisible processes that govern our planet’s weather and indeed, our eco-systems, are shown in vivid detail. Here we see hurricanes whirl into shape, solar storms puncturing the Earth’s magnetic field, and other eye-popping examples of the interconnectivity between unseen forces that all add up to make our world work.
