The night sky is a view of infinity. Does alien life exist out there? Nothing we can ask about the universe is so important for our understanding of the world.
In the show we investigate the conditions required for life, beginning with planets and moons in our Solar System. Then we travel to some of the newly-discovered exoplanets orbiting other stars in the Milky Way. And how can we detect distant worlds? These worlds that are not only very far away, but also strange and unfamiliar. What could life on these worlds look like? What are the chances of encountering intelligent life in the future and how might we detect it?
We get an impression of the importance of telescopes, Mars rovers like “Curiosity” and space probes for these challenging studies.
