Finding Life Beyond Earth (DVD)
Scientists are close to answering one of the most anticipated questions in history: are we alone or is there life beyond Earth? This intriguing PBS documentary, Finding Life Beyond Earth immerses audiences in the sights and sounds of alien worlds, while top astrobiologists explain how these places are changing how we think about the potential for life in our solar system.
Until recently, we considered our neighbouring, planets and moons, as pretty bleak, boring mostly cold, dead rocks where life could never survive. Today, however, the solar system looks wilder and more habitable than we ever imagined possible.
Powerful telescopes and unmanned space missions have unveiled a wide range of dynamic environments, atmospheres thick with organic molecules, active volcanoes and vast saltwater oceans similar to those here on Earth. This ongoing revolution has forced scientists to expand their ideas about what kinds of worlds could support life.
Finding Life Beyond Earth focuses on one of the great unanswered questions; do other life forms exist outside of the Earths atmosphere? This stunningly produced programme features dramatic telescope images and impressive CGI.
