Sun spotsDo you like space? Of course you do, you're floating around in it right now.

Despite the fact my brain is clogged with cartoon trivia and the words to that old Tootsie Roll jingle, I love anything having to do with space and space exploration, even if i don't always completely understand the science behind it. If you share my love of space-y things, and if you happen to get the Science Channel, tune in starting tomorrow for Space Week. Here's some of what's on tap:

Space Station and Beyond (Sunday, May 6 at 8:00 p.m.): This special looks at the International Space Station and includes interviews with astronauts who have lived in it and worked on it.

Base Camp Moon (Monday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m.): A documentary about past visits to the moon, and the possibility of more visits in the future.

Starship Orion: The Future of Space Travel (Tuesday, May 8 at 8:00 p.m.): A look at the Orion, the new space exploration vehicle.

Mars Underground (Wednesday, May 9 at 8:00 p.m.): This special features Dr. Robert Zubrin of Pioneer Astronautics and his vision of human settlements on Mars.

Roving Mars (Thursday, May 10 at 8:00 p.m.): This is the IMAX film following the journey of two Mars rovers: Opportunity and Spirit.
