Read more The Discovery Channel is launching a series of short videos that explore topics that interest you, such as how scientists study the stars and planets.
Discovery’s “The Jets Discovery” series, which will premiere in 2017, is being made with the help of Discovery Networks, which owns Discovery, Discovery’s parent company.
The series explores the history of science through the lens of science fiction, which in turn is explored through the stories of scientists like Carl Sagan and Robert Heinlein.
The first episode of “The Science Channel’s The Jets Curiosity” will be available this week on Discovery’s streaming service, Discovery Now, with the next episode airing on Discovery in 2018.
The series is co-created by “The New Yorker” editor and creator Amy Chozick and “Saturday Night Live” alumna Kate McKinnon.
The first episode will feature a look at the universe from the perspective of NASA astronaut Jack Fischer, as he travels through space.
The show is a collaboration between Discovery and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Discovery is a subsidiary of Discovery Communications, which also owns NBCUniversal, which has been in a struggle with declining subscriber numbers for years.
The network was forced to shut down Discovery News and its sister channels, Science, which is owned by Fox, and Space, which was owned by Disney.
Discovery Networks is also in the process of laying off about 500 employees at its headquarters in Mountain View, California.
