Living Universe – a speculative interstellar adventure in search of an exoplanet that supports complex life. We ask the leading scientists in the world: How do we get there? What will we find? And what will it mean—for society, religion, science, and humanity—if there is proof we are not alone?

Set in the near future, a planet capable of supporting complex life forms light years from Earth has been found. Now, the mammoth task of building a star ship that can travel at 20% the speed of light is near completion.

Using plausible science, engineering and the latest advances in astronomy, the quest for answering the most important question of our times – ‘Are we alone?’ – is about to get underway.

We travel with our Captain ‘Artemis’ – the AI piloting the starship to our imaginary planet, Minerva B. Now it’s time to discover if it does support complex life and to reveal its secrets.

Living Universe features some of the greatest scientists, engineers, biologists and minds of our times, who collectively discover, plan and explore with us the potential of life in our galaxy.

Living Universe captures a pivotal moment in our human story – a science-faction film full of insight and inspiration certain to thrill anyone who dreams of distant worlds.
