They meet up with Uncle Zucchini, a long-time galaxy garbage man! Using Bortronian technology, they start a cleanup. During the course of the day, our kids learn that recycling is necessary both on Earth and in space! Curriculum: The outer space region around Earth swarms with millions of pieces of man-made space junk that create potential hazards. Objects as small as 4 inches can be seen by radar or optical telescopes on Earth. Cleaning the debris is a challenge. Trips to larger objects could remove them from orbit, but that's expensive. Another proposal is using lasers to provide a path-changing push that wouldn't damage the object. "Scientific Sean" - Jet is fascinated by Earth paper airplanes when he watches Sean casually fold one. Jet suggests that the kids challenge each other to build the plane that will fly the farthest, and still carry the payload of a message. Sean wants to use the Scientific Method to solve the distance/size issues. CURRICULUM: The Scientific Method is a simple set of rules that scientists use the world over, to make sure that they are doing their experiments correctly and in a way that they can repeat. But great science comes from both the application of this simple set of rules AND from imagination and inspiration. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Tally ho! Even though Hal is having so much fun sightseeing, he will need to get home somehow.

    Curious George [#402H] The Big Picture/Juicy George * The Big Picture - George loves imitating the Cerulean Warbler's distinct chirp and is aghast when the Man with the Yellow Hat tells him that his favorite bird is on the endangered species list. Not to worry, the Man just wrote a book to make people aware that the bird needs assistance. But unfortunately, stores don't want to carry the book because, at 1,400 pages, it looks like a boring scientific tome. Fortunately, George runs into Steve who has lots of idea for promoting his lemonade stand. This prompts George to come up with an idea of his own -- paint an empty billboard with a razzle-dazzle picture to help promote the book. Easier said than done and even when done, will it help sell the book and spread the bird word?
    * Juicy George - George has never seen a farmer's market before and finding one on his doorstep is just about the best thing ever -- until he drinks Juicy Jay's special blended juice and then that's the best thing ever! When the farmer's market leaves and there's no more juice, the Man with the Yellow Hat and George decide they need their own juicer. As they start to unpack their new purchase, the Man gets called away. A smart monkey can figure out a juicer on his own and recreate the special juice, right? It's certainly not as easy as it seems and certainly not a mess-free process! Although he has a few missteps (amazing how mushed vegetables can fly all the way to the ceiling), George masters the juicer. But will he be able to make the juice he and the Man think is the best ever?

    Beyond Standing Rock Beyond Standing Rock is a new documentary that shines a spotlight on the conflict surrounding the Dakota Access pipeline and the struggle for Native American sovereignty. Over the course of this past fall, dramatic confrontations between Native American protesters and riot-clad law enforcement were seen worldwide. The protests became a symbol for Native Americans' fight for sovereignty and self-determination over its own lands and resources. The documentary digs in deep behind those headlines, into the tug-of-war between climate activists and the need for energy infrastructure, between Native American tribes and the U.S. government, reopening old wounds from broken treaties and a brutal history. From plans to overturn national monuments designations to legislation to fast-track energy infrastructure on Indian lands, there is a great deal at stake for the oil and gas industry, for tribal leaders and for local citizens with the transfer of power in the White House. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
