What Makes You Curious?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Discovery Channel. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever looked at the stars and wondered if life exists outside of our home planet? Have you ever thought about what makes planets rotate and how gravitational force came about? Perhaps you’ve even been curious about how the world looked before mankind set foot on the soil? Questions like these are part of what drives us to discovery and an ever-growing pursuit of knowledge about the things we often take for granted.

Curiosity is behind some of the greatest innovations in history. It was a driving force behind our desire to travel to the bottom of the oceans and land on the moon. Benjamin Franklin, after having witnessed the devastation caused by a lightning strike, was curious about how it worked. Through experimentation and his historic kite flight, he discovered lightning was an electrical current capable of being harnessed and used as energy. He also discovered ways to protect people and buildings from it.

This fundamental human desire to explore, investigate, and learn forms the basis for Discovery’s new series, Curiosity. This series, which premieres Sunday, August 7th at 8pm e/p on the Discovery Channel, covers questions that have been on the minds of people for centuries. Curiosity covers questions like whether or not there is a creator, or an alternative universe, and even the possibilities of time travel.

Curiosity intends to delve deep into many of these core questions and provide the viewer with as much information as possible. The first episode attempts to uncover whether or not God created the universe. Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time, will share his knowledge of the universe and how it may have been created. Hawking, along with a slew of thought leaders, scientists, and celebrities will weigh in on this and several other questions in an attempt to bring the viewer closer to discovering the truth about the creation of the universe.

To some, these questions (and many like these) are impossible to answer, but there’s no reason why we shouldn’t take steps to at least attempt to uncover the truth behind these curiosities. After all, there’s no telling what we might find along the way.
