Brian Cox and Dara O Briain are back at Jodrell Bank Observatory, building up to one of biggest astronomical events of the decade - a solar eclipse. They are joined by legendary Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who tells them why he believes we must look beyond the moon for mankind's next giant leap.

At NASA Brian makes his own attempt to land a lunar module, while Dara finds out what happened to the moon rocks brought back from the lunar surface.

Liz Bonnin prepares to take to the skies for the perfect view of the eclipse - from above the clouds. New resident Stargazer, Dr Lucie Green, reveals how to get the most from moongazing.

From behind the scenes at Europe's spacecraft test centre, Dallas Campbell gets to grips with the robots which could revolutionise space exploration.

Viewers are asked to help search for exploding stars to help refine the known age of the universe.

The countdown to the solar eclipse continues. Brian Cox and Dara O Briain are joined at Jodrell Bank Observatory by legendary Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin, along with Dr Matt Taylor, who updates them on the European Space Agency's Rosetta mission after last year's groundbreaking touchdown on comet 67P.

Liz Bonnin reports live from the Faroe Islands as she steps up her mission to take to the skies and beam back the most spectacular images of Friday's solar eclipse. The team reveals how to view the eclipse safely and Brian ponders how the movements of our solar system mean we can predict the next eclipse to the second.

Dara investigates whether asteroid mining might be the next booming market and Dr Lucie Green has news of the very rare appearance of five planets during the daytime.

Plus the team reveal the results of this year's stargazing challenge - to hunt for supernovae, exploding stars which could help revise the known age of the universe.
