Origins of Life deals with some of the most profound questions of life science: the origins of life and the human search for life beyond Earth.
Starting with the Big Bang, in chronological order, the show deals with the prebiotic chemistry in the Universe, the formation of stars, formation of solar systems, and the first life on Earth. Origins of Life then covers the great extinctions, as well as our search for (primitive) life beyond planet Earth.
Origins of Life is an inspirational journey through time — and a celebration of life on Earth. It features many recent discoveries related to life science, demonstrating that if there was ever a time that science made its greatest advances, it's right now!
