stem-philippe-cousteau-jr-1Host Philippe Cousteau, jr., grandson of the famous undersea explorer, explores the most spectacular places – on the earth, inside the earth, and above the earth – in this riveting earth science series.

Ever wonder how a diamond is formed? Or how other gems and metals like gold come to be? Find out as Philipe goes to diamond mines, gold mines, and deep in the ocean on voyages of discovery.

Every wonder how tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanoes happen? Philippe will journey to active volcanoes and tell us what is happening inside the earth’s burning hot core.

Hurricanes, tornados, and other extreme weather form in the atmosphere…our host will take viewers to weather stations high in the mountains, such as Mount Washington in Vermont, where scientists give us the answers.

Magnificent mountains, canyons, and glaciers will be on the agenda. Hubbard Glacier in Alaska is 76 miles long, and is North America’s largest. It takes about 400 years for ice to traverse the length of it. Watch as Philippe melts the ice and takes a drink of 400 year old water!

19th Century philosopher George Santayana said “The earth has music for those who listen.” XPLORATION AWESOME PLANET will play that music for our young viewers who choose to listen.
