     This 'shamelessly nerdy...deeply silly' (Radio Times) space extravaganza features fewer close-ups of Professor Brian Cox looking cool in front of a rocket than Wonders of the Universe but more weird, wonderful and occasionally woeful stories about the geniuses, Nazis and Satanists who plotted to propel humankind to the stars. Find out the many and varied ways to leave the planet as It Is Rocket Science takes you on a 'gleefully irreverent' (The Scotsman) whistle-stop comic tour of the Great Brains who put monkeys, ladies, dogs and gentlemen into orbit.

    Helen Keen presents this funny, off-beat but factually accurate series exploring the science of rockets, the history of space travel and the brilliant but occasionally warped brains behind it all. In these four episodes, she finds out about the three fathers of rocket science; examines how Wernher Von Braun went from SS officer to American space supremo to Disney children's presenter; takes a look at the breath-taking drama of the Space Race and its evil twin the Cold War.
