Humankind has always sought to understand the mysteries of the Universe and speculated about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Today we know of thousands of exoplanets — planets located outside our
Solar System — that offer valuable information about our own planet, its origins and life on Earth. We’re on the cusp of making some fascinating discoveries. But how will they change our lives?

This “feel good movie” about life is intended to be celebratory, positive and exciting. The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium team hopes to get audiences interested not only in astronomy research, but also in creating connections between ourselves and the extraterrestrial life that may be out there in the Universe.

A fulldome show for planetariums and digital dome theatres.

Seen it at IPS Toulouse, where it won a well deserved Award. It doesn't convince with the with the most advanced visual effects (Which are still very good!) But most importantly it comes with a narration that emotionally touches you, even after watching douzens of shows with a similar topic. And I think this makes this show so unique.

A great overall picture of the field of exoplanets and exobiology.
