About the Show
Discover the challenges humankind must overcome before journeying to distant stars. One day the population may face no choice but to leave Earth - forced by an ice age, pollution or a meteorite to find a new home elsewhere in the galaxy. The difficulties are daunting - humans evolved to live on Earth, not in space. But there are some scientists working on ways to make the journey to Mars and beyond possible.
