The Discovery Channel: Science Channel, channel 101 on my Warner Cable, has some pretty good shows on this week. They are "Cosmic Odessy" "Mission Control" and "Beyond The Stars". While obviously targeted at the general public and not at advanced amatures or pros, they were still well presented. While they were a little sensationalistic, in an effort to be entertaining, nothing jumped off the screen at me as being wrong.
Maybe some of you folks with longer attention spans than I can find some nits to pick. They are certainly worth the time to have a look.
