    Mysteries of Sleep
    Science shows that sleep plays a significant role in memory retention and emotional regulation. So why are we getting so little of it?

    Decoding da Vinci
    How was Leonardo da Vinci able to think so far "outside the box" that he envisaged developments in engineering, astronomy, and anatomy that were only realized centuries later? The list of da Vinci's "firsts" is astonishing: he asserted that "the sun does not move" more than a generation before Copernicus; he reasoned that fatty deposits in narrowed arteries were caused by an unhealthy diet; he drew the first designs for a parachute, armored car, machine gun, diving suit, helicopter, and a flying machine that anticipates the modern hang glider, not to mention history's first humanoid robot. NOVA joins Walter Isaacson, author of the acclaimed recent biography, on a journey to Italy to explore the impact of da Vinci's art on his science and his science on his art.

    Decoding The Weather Machine
    Climate change is arguably the defining challenge of our time, yet widespread misunderstanding and misinformation has hampered the ability of individuals -- politicians and public alike -- to understand and address the issue. In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the noise and help define the way forward. Join scientists around the globe on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how they are finding that we can be resilient -- even thrive -- in the face of enormous change.

    Saving The Dead Sea
    There's no place on Earth like it. Cleopatra attributed her beauty to its secrets. King Herod built one of the world's first health spas on its shores. And as the biblical story goes, "rocks and fire falling from the sky" buried Sodom and Gomorrah and the sea became "the sea of salt" -- The Dead Sea. Now this wonder of the world is dying. Since 1976, its level has declined by more than sixty-five feet. Its coastline is pockmarked with thousands of sinkholes. Can the Dead Sea be saved? After more than a decade of research and debate, scientists, engineers and political leaders have come up with a daring plan, one that could not only save the sea but help bring stability to a region rife with conflict. NOVA follows this unprecedented endeavor - perhaps the world's largest water chemistry experiment ever - as scientists and engineers race to save the Dead Sea and help bring water to one of the driest regions on Earth.
