"If we could actually see it in person, I think we would find that there's no good comparison we could make with anything that we're familiar with. That's what makes it interesting,"
 Well that 1800F temperature and 4,350 mph winds would add to interesting part.

Neat! Glass rain!

That sounds mildly uncomfortable.  Better have a good HVAC on the lander.

Oh, man, I should have posted that. Bravo, my good man.

One good swat from Lucifer's Hammer and the planet goes down

Sorry subs, but I refuse to get my science news from Fox. Ever.

No, not this one

You sure, subby?

Some stay dry, and some feel the pain...

I think making all these "artist's impression" images for NASA would have to be the best job ever.

Is see your Attenborough and raise you a Freeman:

Scientists think that there are many planets out there much more fantastic than what we can observe in our own cosmic backyard. Planets, blue like our own, but much larger with winds that move faster than any aircraft known to man, and yet.... perhaps even they hold the components to life. If only they can find each other in the tempest. How could life exist in such strange places? Well, Dr. Strangehands Weirdiopolis has a theory...

Tried watching it - can't stay awake.  Not that the show isn't interesting, it's just Morgan Freeman's voice is like auditory Xanax.

Had the same problem with Western Civ in college.  Professor sounded exactly like James Earl Jones.

I will plead to guilt on that too. I have found myself going "That's amazing!" on second and then a moment later realizing I had missed the past 15 minutes of show because something just triggers that sleep function. Thank goodness for DVR so I can retry a few passes. The content is typically surprisingly good for a channel that has slipped so much of the rest of the time.
