PBS provides some of the best TV programming that is entertaining, educational, and edifying for all ages. On March 2, Ideastream announces some interesting PBS TV programs for today and the rest of the work week on its local channel: NOVA: First Man on the Moon , new music from Ireland’s Celtic Woman, and Rick Steves’ Special: Israelis and Palestinians Today .

Also, PBS announces on March 2 its premiere tonight of A Year in Space that covers astronaut Scott Kelly’s record-breaking 12-month mission on the International Space Station, from launch to landing. NASA charts the effects of long-duration spaceflight by comparing him to his identical twin on Earth, astronaut Mark Kelly.
