What We Still Don't Know - Are We Alone (Episode 1)

Today on Far Future Horizons we present the first episode of "What we Still Don't Know" hosted by Martin Rees

The first instalment of this documentary series explores the existential question of whether or not we are alone in the Universe.

In this three part series Martin Rees tackles the deepest scientific and philosophical questions of our age. 

I am continuously amazed not so much by what science has thought us about ourselves and our place in the universe but, by what we don't know. There remain many pertinent questions at the frontiers of science. Nearly two years ago back in July, 2005 the magazine Science of the American Association for the Advancement of Science devoted a special issue to those very questions.

What Is the Universe Made Of?, What Is the Biological Basis of Consciousness?, Are We Alone in the Universe?, How and Where Did Life on Earth Arise?, Do Deeper Principles Underlie Quantum Uncertainty and Nonlocality? and many, many more.

Here is an interesting documentary about things we still do not know hosted by Britain’s Astronomer Royal Martin Rees

We live within the grandest of mysteries. The realm we call -The Universe. Many questions still remain about the nature and our place in this mysterious cosmos and it is going be tremendous fun trying to find answers to these questions.
