Watch as some of the world's leading scientists put the most ambitious geo-engineering ideas to the test in order to tackle global climate change. From covering acres of Greenland's glaciers in protective blankets to constructing space rockets to sending tiny reflective lenses into orbit, these experiments push the boundaries of science and technology by exploring eight creative ideas that just might reduce global warming.

Following the devastation of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, thousands of acres of Gulf Coast mangrove forests have been left bare. The huge swath of land presents a perfect proving ground for scientist Mark Hodges. Hodges believes he has devised a way to reforest large areas of Earth from the air. His idea? To use an aircraft to drop tens of thousands of canisters, each holding a tree seedling. The Discovery Project Earth team will carry out a series of tests to determine if his plan will work.

Only available in the US.
