A fury is building on the surface of the sun – high-velocity jets, a fiery tsunami wave that reaches 100,000 kilometers high, rising loops of electrified gas. What’s driving these strange phenomena? How will they affect planet Earth? Find the answers as we venture into the seething interior of our star. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch

Grossology and You


Grade 2 and up
It’s a normal day for one teen-age boy until he encounters Scabby, Boogie and Flatus, three game show contestants who are determined to learn which system of the human body — immune, respiratory or digestive — is most important. The animated Grossology and You is funny, educational and just a little gross!
