Available to license for digital planetariums, The Search for Life: Are We Alone? explores the links between life on Earth and the potential for life on other planets.

For as long as humans have contemplated the cosmos, they have wondered about extraterrestrial life.

Narrated by Harrison Ford, The Search for Life: Are We Alone? is a thrilling exploration of countless worlds that may harbor life, from the depths of the Earth's oceans to the outer reaches of the cosmos.

Through impressive scientific visualizations—including the surface of Mars and the exterior of Jupiter's moon Europa—the show invites audiences to consider where extraterrestrial life might exist and in what form.
