    Nova [#4208] Invisible Universe Revealed 25 years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. In honor of Hubble's landmark anniversary, Nova tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it.
    From its inception through its early days, when a one-millimeter engineering blunder turned the telescope into an object of ridicule, to the five heroic astronaut missions that returned Hubble to the cutting edge of science, Nova hears from the scientists and engineers on the front line who tell the amazing Hubble story as never before. This single telescope has helped astronomers pinpoint the age of the universe, revealed the birthplace of stars and planets, advanced our understanding of dark energy and cosmic expansion, and uncovered black holes lurking at the heart of galaxies. For more than a generation, Hubble's stunning images have brought the beauty of the heavens to millions, revealing a cosmos richer and more wondrous than we ever imagined. Join Nova for the story of this magnificent machine and its astonishing discoveries.

    @Home This documentary journeys through the landscape of a forgotten America, introducing the invisible communities of people living without permanent housing. It examines the crisis of homelessness through the lens of eactivist Mark Horvath, who harnesses social media's potential to democratize and empower the less fortunate.
    The program follows Horvath on a whirlwind road trip across the country, from Las Vegas to Arkansas to Pittsburgh, as he interviews newly and chronically homeless people in tent cities, under bridges and at by-the-week motels. These individuals challenge stereotypes by sharing their stories and revealing their simple but life-changing wishes for a place to live, a job and the ability to help others. The film also explores the toll homelessness took on Horvath, too, as he shares his fight to rebuild his life while devoting himself to helping others.
