Plot Synopsis

Using easy-to-understand language and motion graphics, CHEAT SHEET breaks down complex science concepts about the universe, the human body and the weather. Each 60-minute episode focuses on a different aspect of science, including: "The Body," which highlights these questions -- How did I get my granny's chin? Why do I catch colds? Why am I hung over? What will we look like a thousand years from now?; "The Universe," delving into everything from white dwarfs to black holes and answering questions about how stars work and where did it all begin?; and "The Weather," which reveals answers to these burning questions -- Why is the sky blue? What's a cloud? How can I avoid being hit by lightning? Science Channel aired the US premiere of this series on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 10pm ET.
