PBS is taking viewers to the coast this summer with a new episode of its hit science-based series NOVA.

NOVA: Operation Lighthouse Rescue will be released on DVD on Tuesday, July 26th.  This new episode of NOVA follows the efforts of engineers to move the historic 175 foot lighthouse from its original location atop the cliffs of Martha’s Vineyard to a safer location 134 feet away where it will face less danger from Mother Nature.  Along the way audiences learn the history of the lighthouse, allowing them to understand what makes it such an important landmark.  They also learn about the effects that nature plays on the lighthouse’s location, and much more, including the geology and archaeology discovered by the engineers, and even the technology used to move the lighthouse.  Audiences can view the trailer for this episode of NOVA online now via the series’ official YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdLT8X4Okxc.
