Series Description

Premiered March 1974 NOVA is a general-interest documentary series that addresses a single science issue each week. Billed as "science adventures for curious grown-ups" when it first aired in March, 1974, NOVA continues to offer an informative and entertaining approach to a challenging subject. 1996 marked NOVA's 23rd season, which makes it the longest-running science program on national television. It is also one of television's most acclaimed series, having won every major television award, most of them many times over. Series release date: 3/3/1974

Program Description

The cosmos has a secret ingredient: a swarm of invisible particles that fills every cubic inch of space. Trillions of them zip through our bodies but we don't notice a thing. Yet without these ghostly, mysterious particles known as neutrinos, the sun wouldn't shine and the elements that make up our world wouldn't exist. NOVA tells the 70-year struggle of scientists to understand them, a tale of atom spies, secret laboratories, and mind-boggling disappearances. This is the story of a discovery that shatters scientists' understanding of what the universe is made of, and could bring us closer than ever to understanding how the universe was first formed.
