Storyline

Journey from the depths of the Pacific Ocean into the far reaches of space on a quest to find something that changes everything...signs of life, somewhere else in the universe. With cutting-edge imagery from the world's most powerful telescopes, The Search for Life in Space takes audiences from the surface of Mars and the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn, to the extreme lava fields of Hawaii and thermal vents deep beneath the sea. In these harsh environments, astrobiologists look for clues to how life takes hold. As this immersive adventure into the universe reveals the possibility of planets like ours, The Search for Life in Space will make you re-examine such fundamental questions as: "Where did we come from?", "How did we get here?" and "Are we alone?"

Very well done, short on where we stand right now.
19 September 2018 | by timvuumSee all my reviews

Not the most detailed documentary. But more than great. What we have discovered, what we are doing now and what we we're going to do. Calm and nicely explained and also easy to follow.

The graphics are fantastic. Maybe even better than some sci-fi movies.

It doesn't deserve this rating. It's no cosmos, but it really isn't bad.
