Synopsis

Astronomer Grant Miller is obsessed with looking for earth-like planets in distant solar systems. Using a 50 year old telescope based at sea level in Scotland, he scans the night sky for earth-like worlds. Not only does he think that life is possible outside of our solar system, he believes that a discovery will be made in his own lifetime.
Astro-biologist Duncan Forgan uses number and models to predict how galaxies are formed, and how and where life might appear within a galaxy.
A film about our quest to understand life with some of the people who have devoted their lives to the most fundamental questions of our time.
