Life Beyond Earth
2 x 60'
With the recent discovery of new world's orbiting nearby stars bringing the total number discovered so far in the thousands many are believed to be worlds that can host liquid water and the basic ingredients for life.
Life Beyond Earth looks at the possibility of life evolving in the oceans of distant worlds including places within our own solar system, What kind of microbial life could exist? Would this life resemble anything like our own, based on DNA and the known structures of carbon based life.
With interviews from exo biologists and experts in Astrobiology we develop an insight into these fascinating questions, would their evolution mimic our own or something entirely alien? With 3D animation and visualisations we will explore the alien environments, the microbes and viruses that might exist; events that shape evolutionary processes over time to more evolved multi cell creatures and what would be required for the emergence of intelligence?
With the number of planets now being observed why hasn't the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence located any radio or other signal sources, is mankind truly alone? All these and other questions will be asked and the answers speculated upon in Life Beyond Earth.
