The Search for Life

For many thousands of years people have looked out from the small blue dot we call Earth and wondered if we are alone in the Universe. In The Search for Life we will consider this question.

Find out how life is thought to have started on this planet, where life has been found in some of the most extreme places on the Earth, and how we can use this new-found knowledge to search for life on other planets and moons in the Solar System.

Beyond our Solar System, around distant stars, new planets are being found all the time. May they hold the secret we are looking for?

If we find life, will it be simple life, such as bacteria, or will we find an intelligent alien looking back at us wondering if they will ever find another race they can contact?

Join us in our exciting show as we Search for Life.
