For the first time in the history of space exploration, scientists spotted and tracked an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. About the size of a truck, the asteroid slammed into the Nubian Desert in Sudan, in nearly the exact spot and only a few seconds from the time scientists had predicted. Now, together with NASA scientists, National Geographic joins researchers as they examine the remnants of the asteroid to unlock the clues to help us prevent or survive a future incident.
For the first time ever, National Geographic presents its programming in DVD-R format. Available exclusively through this site, you can now own more of our award-winning specials and documentaries in a high-quality DVD format.
How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
This sounds more like a Movie Blockbuster rather than a Documentary? When I decided to get this particular DVD on the subject matter it recap my knowledge about Astromony and space. There's alot of interesting stuff some people don't know about Asteroids but the threat is real and it's out there. This is like an improved version of the old documentary NG broadcast some years ago Asteroids Deadly Impact. I did enjoy the commentary and it's fanacinating to watch but it's not an excellent documentary and I'm hoping for better results next time. I gave a satisfactory rating as being close to very good or near perfection. Thank You NG.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
