April 2015 Family Choice

KLRU chooses three to four programs each month for your family to enjoy and view together. In April 2015, we have the following lined up:

Wednesday, April 1 at 7:00 pm: NOVA “Alien Planets Revealed”
Combining animation with input from expert astrophysicists and astrobiologists, “Alien Planets Revealed” takes viewers on a journey along with the Kepler telescope. How does the telescope look for planets? How many of these planets are like our Earth? Will any of these planets be suitable for life as we know it?

Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00 pm: NATURE “Animal Homes: Location, Location, Location”
Finding a good base of operations is key to successfully raising a family. One must find the right stream or tree, the right building materials, neighbors and sometimes tenants. In the wild, every home is a unique DIY project, every head of household a designer and engineer.

Wednesday, April 22 at 7:00 pm: NATURE “Animal Houses: Animal Cities”
For some animals, living in the midst of huge colonies of their own kind is the most secure and rewarding housing arrangement. Icelandic puffins form nesting colonies of more than a million, providing shared information about food sources and reducing the odds of attacks on individual birds. But colonies are useful for predators, too.

Wednesday, April 22 at 8:00 pm: NOVA “Invisible Universe Revealed”
Twenty-five years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. In honor of Hubble’s landmark anniversary, NOVA tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it.
