Summary:You might think hunting for aliens is just science fiction. You'd be wrong. It's a vibrant frontier of modern science, where fierce debates rage. In this film, the Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees, explores the limits of our understanding of the universe and our place in it. It's a journey that, for Martin, leads to an extraordinary conclusion. Our idea of what an alien will be is all wrong. It's not organic beings we should be looking for. It's machines. Renowned leaders in the field offer a counterpoint to Martin's conclusions in this fascinating attempt to solve a profound mystery.
