Discovery En Espanol’s Curiosity Asks – “Do You Ever Wonder?”
New Landmark Series Tackles Age Old Questions: How Will the World End? Did God Create the Universe? Are we Ready for an Alien Invasion?
MIAMI, Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — From the visionary mind of Discovery’s founder John Hendrickscomes CURIOSITY, an unprecedented series that brings the ‘I wonder?’ moment to television with a unique blend of eclectic and provocative subjects. Premiering Sunday, November 6 at 9 PM E/P on Discovery en Espanol and airing each subsequent Sunday, CURIOSITY fearlessly dives into a world of questions posed by well-known personalities including renowned physicist, cosmologist Stephen Hawking exploring at the age old question of God’s existence, Lost and Avatar star Michelle Rodriguezasking how we might survive an alien attack, and award-winning actor Samuel L. Jackson examining the five most probable ways life on Earth could end, and so much more.
In each episode, CURIOSITY captures that fundamental sense of wonder present in all of us, taking viewers on an intellectual roller coaster ride, exploring thought-provoking subjects.
CURIOSITY begins on Discovery en Espanol, November 6 at 9 PM E/P, with a look at one of the biggest mysteries of all time, “What Destroyed Atlantis?”. Although many believe the story of Atlantisto be just that, a story, others believe it to be true. The legendary city of Atlantis was described by Plato about 2,600 years ago, but was it real and if so, where is it now? As with any mystery, there are plenty of theories about what happened to the lost city. Now, new evidence suggests that Atlantis is more than a myth and the island, so long shrouded in mystery, may have left clues to its destruction.
CURIOSITY then continues on November 13 at 9 PM E/P with “Did God Create the Universe?”. Controversial and mind provoking, Stephen Hawking takes on the third rail of academia with a highly charged topic. For centuries religion and science have clashed over the question of explaining the universe. How was the world created? Can the laws of Nature co-exist equally with a belief in God? Blending cutting-edge CGI with unparalleled scholarship, Hawking traces the ancient discoveries of Artistocus and Galileo to the scientific breakthroughs of Einstein in arguing that the simple properties of our universe far outweigh the possibility of the invisible hand of God.
Continuing throughout November, Discovery en Espanol will offer viewers additional and captivating episodes of CURIOSITY that explore life’s most fascinating mysteries including: “What’s Beneath America?” (11/20 at 9PM), “How Will the World End?” (11/27 at 9PM) and “Alien Invasion: are We Ready?” (11/27 at 10PM).
