Today’s documentary investigates one of the most controversial questions of all time… are we alone in the universe?

This is not documentary that claims to have conclusive proof of extraterrestrial civilizations elsewhere in the Milky Way Galaxy, but rather a look at the serious science of the search for extraterrestrial life.
The search for extra-terrestrial life has been going for 50 years – but there’s been a recent breakthrough. Astronomers have discovered a new planet called Gliese 581 c.
It is the most Earth-like planet ever found. It orbits a star and may have habitats capable of supporting life. NASA hopes to find 50 more Earth-like planets by the end of the decade, all of which increases the chance that alien life has begun elsewhere.
