Magnificent Desolation: Walking On The Moon 3D Science Video - DVD.
Only 12 have walked on the moon. You're next! Presented and narrated by Tom Hanks, Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon is an IMAX documentary film that transports the viewer to lunar surface, where they can walk alongside the 12 extraordinary astronauts who have been there, experiencing what they saw, heard, and felt.
This IMAX presentation cuts no corners when it comes to its mission, recreating--down to the most precise detail--the experience of landing on the moon. An educational extravaganza, the unique film allows viewers to experience a moonwalk in its closest approximation. The film begins by noting the fascination that the moon has held for people over the centuries, and looking at their fantasies about what they might find there. Proceeding on to the astronauts who made the trip and the years of preparation that made it possible, the film shows what the lunar landings looked like, using sets that recreate the moon's surface with painstaking fidelity. The film provides a brief overview of some of the experiments the astronauts were sent to perform, capturing the gravity of the venture as well as the joy they experienced. As they explore the surface of the moon both by foot and by car, the perspective of the audience becomes that of the astronauts, creating a giddy sensation not unlike the optical illusions the space explorers themselves describe. MAGNIFICENT DESOLATION also posits some hypothetical situations, documenting conspiracy theories that claim the moonwalks never happened and creating a harrowing enactment of an emergency that, thankfully, never took place. The presentation is very kid-friendly but, paired with the spectacular effects, it will appeal to viewers of all ages. In addition to narrator Tom Hanks, who also produced the film, the star-studded cast of voices includes Mathew McConaughey, Bill Paxton, Morgan Freeman, Paul Newman, Matt Damon, John Travolta, and Donnie Wahlberg.

This is the only Mark Cowen video.

The Weather.  BBC Video.  DVD.  3 Hour and 50 Minutes.

The Weather takes you on a trip around the world with death-defying presenter Donal MacIntyre. While he takes on the worst the weather can throw at him, stunning computer graphics and rare archive footage reveal the strange and often unbelievable forces that surround us.
   WIND What can wind do at it's worst? Presenter Donal MacIntyre exposes himself to 100 mile-per-hour gales in a laboratory wind tunnel to understand the devestating force that powered Hurricane Andrew and created an unprecedented cluster of tornados in the midwest.
   Meanwhile, two balloonists entrust their lives to the fickle forces of the jet stream, and we learn how the earth-circling winds were put to deadly use by the Japanese during World War II.
   WET Ride with the rain from the wettest place in Europe to the wettest place in the world, with a stop under the parched Texan skies, where farmers hope to harness the power of nature to create rain. From the first drop of a monsoon to the floods that kill millions each year, water brings life and death in equal measure.
   COLD Spectacular avalanches and ice storms are only a few of the bizarre phenomena that come with winter. But what about pure cold? After half an hour in his underwear at minus 18 degrees, Donal has to be rescued or die, as his body begins to shut down. So how do the Inuit in Greenland, and the Danish sledge patrol survive at 40 below? HEAT The sun's energy can kill--in our own cities as well as in the hot deserts of the equator.
   Donal endures wet heat in the jungles of Belize, and dries out in the Sahara where it is so hot that water in the atmosphere cannot condense into rain. But the gravest danger may be the warming Earth, with its rising sea levels, angry skies, deadly droughts, and devastating storms.
