Are we alone in the universe? It's one of the oldest questions in astronomy, whether there is life elsewhere in the universe. In this presentation, join narrator Rupert Grint on an exploration of the possibility of life in our solar system and beyond. Learn how what we're discovering about life on our own planet is changing our perceptions regarding the search for life in the universe. From robotic explorers of the Red Planet to the realization that our galaxy is home to potentially millions of Earth-like worlds, this planetarium show will inspire and educate. Appropriate for upper elementary to adult audiences. Topics covered include extremophile biology, exoplanets, the watery interior of Europa, and the design, construction, and launch of a Martian rover. Running time approximately 30 minutes, 45 minutes with live star talk and discussion.
