Kepler - A Search for Habitable Planets
Kepler is a critical component in NASA's broader efforts to ultimately find and study planets where Earth-like conditions may be present. Kepler looks for the Habitable Zone... which is where scientists believe that water may be. Professional video. Run time 07:27.
In this video adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how the common wood frog survives the cold winter. Wood frogs are found in the northern United States and Canada and must endure freezing cold temperatures for parts of the year. In order to survive the cold, they have a special adaptation—they are able to freeze solid without damaging their cells. Sugar acts like a natural antifreeze in their bodies, allowing them to spend the winter frozen and then resume function in the spring. Run time 03:3
Photosynthesis, Part 1
This is a short slidecast of the process of photosynthesis that starts with a defintion. A quote from the video: "The primary function of photosynthesis is to produce organic compounds useful to the cell. This is accomplished by using light, carbon dioxide, and water. Overall, photosynthesis converts light energy from the Sun to chemical energy."

Show Me Science-The Science of Light
The human eye may only be capable of seeing a small fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum that comes off the sun, but without this ability to see visible light portion of the spectrum we would be unable to function. Show Me Science: The Science of Light studies the light that the sun produces, and its effects on Earth's life forms. The program also demonstrates how a solar eclipse takes place, how light is reflected and seen by the human eye, and how light is much more than just a visual medi
