Life Beyond Earth | Timothy Ferris: Lobster Scene | PBS

Duration: 01:45
Program: Life Beyond Earth

Does life exist beyond Earth? The unanswered question has transfixed stargazers for centuries. Life Beyond Earth, hosted by Timothy Ferris, tells the story of humanity's search for life beyond our own planet. Today's astronomers can see planets orbiting distant stars. As probes head to the farthest reaches of our universe, and scientists scan the heavens for alien radio signals, some predict the discovery of life elsewhere by century's end.
