Finding Life Beyond Earth Are we Alone NOVA HD

Take a spectacular trip to distant realms of our solar system to discover where secret forms of life may lie hidden. Combining the latest telescope images with dazzling animation, this program 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. We used to think our neighboring planets and moons were fairly boring—mostly cold, dead rocks where life could never take hold. Today, however, the solar system looks wilder than we ever imagined.
Powerful telescopes and unmanned space missions have revealed a wide range of dynamic environments—atmospheres thick with organic molecules, active volcanoes, and vast saltwater oceans. This ongoing revolution is forcing scientists to expand their ideas about what kinds of worlds could support life. If we do find primitive life-forms elsewhere in the solar system, it may well be that life is common in the universe—the rule, and not the exception.

Finding Life Beyond Earth - Is Anybody Out There? - Space Discovery Documentary

Since the beginning of civilization, humanity has wondered whether we are alone in the universe. As NASA has explored our solar system and beyond, it has developed increasingly sophisticated tools to address this fundamental question. Within our solar system, NASA’s missions have searched for signs of both ancient and current life, especially on Mars and soon, Jupiter’s moon Europa. Beyond our solar system, missions, such as Kepler and TESS, are revealing thousands of planets orbiting other stars.

Carl Edward Sagan, Ph.D. (1934-1996) was an American astronomer, astrochemist, author, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

He is world-famous for writing popular science books and for co-writing and presenting the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which has been seen by more than 600 million people in over 60 countries, making it the most widely watched PBS program in history.

A book to accompany the program was also published. He also wrote the novel Contact, the basis for the 1997 Robert Zemecki's film of the same name starring Jodie Foster.

During his lifetime, Sagan published more than 600 scientific papers and popular articles and was author, co-author, or editor of more than 20 books. In his works, he frequently advocated skeptical inquiry, secular humanism, and the scientific method.

A Dialogue: Life Within Planets and Beyond Earth

A Dialogue: Life Within Planets and Beyond Earth

UW Professor of Oceanography, John R. Delaney, explores the complexities of the ocean, earth's life support system, in The Global Ocean & Human Culture: Past, Present & Future lecture series. In this fourth lecture in the series, Professor Delaney discusses undiscovered life forms below the sea floor and beyond the planet. This lively, on-stage dialogue between Professor Delaney and UW Professor of Oceanography and Astrobiology, John Baross, will explore the role of submarine volcanoes in the origin and evolution of life on earth and the potential for finding life in similar settings on other planets and moons. Baross led the National Academy of Sciences committee that provided guidance for scientific study of the limits of organic life in planetary systems. Delaney served on NASA committees that defined the nature of missions to the icy moons of Jupiter.

The Search For A Second Earth - Space Documentary HD

In the 400 years since Galileo Galilei first held a telescope to the heavens, astronomers have laid bare some of the deepest mysteries of the cosmos. They have seen comets crash into planets, found oceans inside moons, and witnessed the shudder of spacetime as black holes collide.

But space remains a realm of the unknown. Writing in the journal Nature on Thursday, scientists in Canada reported the detection of mysterious radio signals from halfway across the universe. It is only the second time that repeating fast radio bursts, or FRBs, have been spotted.

Astronomers have yet to formulate a full theory of what produces these enigmatic, rapid-fire beams of electromagnetic waves. And in the absence of a firm explanation, speculation has fallen, perhaps inevitably, on alien civilisations. Avi Loeb, a Harvard astronomer, has proposed that FRBs might be powerful energy beams used to propel alien spacecraft.

It is not the first time that poorly-understood cosmic phenomena have been ascribed to industrious extraterrestrials. When in 2015 astronomers noticed a star, 1,500 light years distant, dimming and brightening, researchers suggested an “alien megastructure” might be revolving around it, and collecting energy for its constructors. Then, in 2017, the massive cigar-shaped ‘Oumuamua barrelled into the solar system, the first interstellar object known to do so, and prompted speculation that it was a tumbling spacecraft.

Chris French, head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London, said it was natural for humans to see aliens behind every cosmic mystery. “We have what is called an intentionality bias,” he said. “It’s the assumption that whenever something happens, something or someone made it happen for a reason. In the context of space, that someone is always going to be aliens.”

The evolutionary argument for intentionality bias, or “agenticity”, is that our ancient ancestors fared better if a rustle in the bushes made them run for cover rather than assume it was the wind. “At the end of the day, our brains evolved to keep us alive rather than apprehend the truth of the universe,” said French.

The late astronomer Carl Sagan spotted the dilemma for scientists. They can become cranks if they are too open-minded, but may miss out on landmark discoveries if they are not open-minded enough. “It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs,” he said. “The most sceptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us and at the same time a great openness to new ideas.”

Duncan Lorimer, an astrophysicist at West Virginia University, discovered the first FRB in 2007. When his team spotted the radio burst, the possibility of it being a message from ET certainly came up. “We absolutely thought about aliens,” he said. “We only had the one object. We looked for patterns in the signal and couldn’t find anything, but we definitely considered it.”

Now, mention of aliens is beginning to wear thin. “It helps to sell the story, but at this point I do roll my eyes a bit,” he said. Many astronomers now favour the idea that FRBs are intense beams of radiation shed by charged particles as they are whipped around by strongly magnetised neutron stars. “It seems like a more plausible idea, but I don’t want to rule out aliens completely,” he said. “I’ve been wrong before.”

Alien Planets Revealed - A Nova Science 2014 Doc.

Documentary which aired in january 2014, a good documentary which asks the question Are we alone? and what might alien life look like on these other worlds that are being discovered. Kepler indentified more than 3,500 planets orbiting other stars in our Milkyway galaxy.

The Search for Life in the Universe

Are we alone? It’s a question that has obsessed us for centuries, and now we have the technology to do more than wonder. Scientists on the hunt for distant planets and extraterrestrial intelligence explore faraway galaxies and barely visible realms. Nobel Laureate Sir Paul Nurse journeys to the brink of discovery with Jill Tarter, David Charbonneau, and Steven Squyres to contemplate what it would mean to have company in the cosmos.

The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows a broad general audience to engage with scientific discoveries. Our mission is to cultivate a general public informed by science, inspired by its wonder, convinced of its value, and prepared to engage with its implications for the future.
