4.0 0 x
We can see them twinkling away but what if you wanted to actually visit one of the stars in the night sky? You'd be in for a long long journey as the closest star, Proxima Centauri, would take 80,000 years to reach.

3.0 1 x
If you were able to go to Mars on holiday then you'd need to be prepared - for the horrendously long journey, bad weather and lack of facilities. But if you can cope with all that, there are some very special places to see!

Season 1, Episode 6 (The Moon Was Made Of Cheese?)

4.0 1 x
The moon may look a bit like a piece of cheese but if it was then it actually wouldn't stay cheese for long. The cheese would separate with water and gases boiling up to the surface to create oceans and an atmosphere.

Season 1, Episode 22 - You Could Live On The Moon?

3.0 6 x
It would be the ultimate house move - packing up and setting up home on the moon nearly 400,000 km away. The good news is that there is water on the moon along with everything you'd need to build a house.

4.0 3 x
Teleportation might actually be possible in theory but it would be rather dangerous; what they don't tell you in science fiction is that the speed you'd come out of the teleport depends on where you went.

Catching a falling star - aka a shooting star - is impossible, but let's try anyway. As we push bigger and bigger space rocks down to Earth we'll see why trying to catch a falling star would make our world look like Saturn!

Season 1, Episode 17 - The Earth Was Shaped Like A Doughnut?

3.0 1 x
The Earth, like all planets we know of, is spherical but there is actually one other shape that could possibly work - a doughnut shape. Days would only be 2 hours long but in the middle you could see technicolour sunsets.

Season 1, Episode 16 - The Earth Stopped Spinning?

3.0 8 x
It's easy to take some things for granted. Like the earth spinning. If it stopped spinning, days would become a year long, it would get unbearably hot and the sea would be replaced by a windy dustbowl.

Season 1, Episode 11 - The Earth Was Flat?

3.0 6 x
In this episode we flatten the earth like a pancake to find out just how bonkers a flat earth would be. Gravity would be completely different with everything pulled towards the centre.
