Several FOX owned stations have agreed to air a two-hour collection of programs focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (H/T @Scirens). (It’s another reminder that FOX is a distinct entity from Fox News Channel.) Called Xploration Station (not the original title), it consists of four 30-minute programs with lots of on location footage. The four programs are called Xploration Awesome Plnet, Xploration Outer Space, Xploration Earth 2050, and Xploration Animal Science. Here’s a promotional video:
The hosts all have experience in science, technology and/or video presentation. Phillippe Cousteau (Awesome Planet) is part of the Cousteau family of ocean explorers, Emily Calandrelli has degrees in engineering and astronautics and has worked for NASA, Joe Penna is a filmmaker who drew attention to his work in part due to his YouTube channel MysteryGuitarMan. Animal Science – an Emmy-nominated program – appears to be narrated rather than hosted.
The programs will run on the weekends starting in September. Check your local listings to see when and on what channel.
