* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/military/hitlers-supergun.html "Bombing Hitler's Supergun"]]. Joe Kennedy Jr. (UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy's older brother) attempts to fly a remote-controlled bomb into the WaveMotionGun to destroy it, but an electrical fault causes the plane to explode in midair before he can bail out of it as planned. Allied troops reach the supergun site a month later to discover that an earlier British bombing attack had already destroyed the site.

* HopelessWar: Discussed at length in [[http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/lostsub/ "Hitler's Lost Sub"]]. The latter half of the documentary discusses the downfall of the U-boat Force against the Allies and their hopelessly staggering casualty rate, which resulted in only 1 out of every 4 German crewmen returning home. One U-boat veteran even recalls something his flotilla chief said as they left on patrol: "Never mind sinking ships. Just come back, please."

Compare ''Nature'', PBS' other long-running science documentary series which, depending on the year and PBS station, often airs back-to-back with ''Nova''. NotToBeConfusedWith, well, [[{{Nova}} pretty much any work on this list]], or with actual novae or supernovae (although the series takes its name from them).

* HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure: Twice in "Earth from Space". First they described the energy absorbed by all the water vapor evaporating from all the Earth's oceans in multiples of the entire energy production of all power plants in the world combined. Then they showed the brine released from freezing water in the Antarctic cascading downward under water. It was said to be 500 times the flow rate of Niagara Falls.
