Do we find luck or does it find us? Understanding the relationship between "luck" and the human brain may radically revise our understanding of both the laws of nature and the human brain itself.moreless
Is God worshipped in other worlds across the universe? How might alien deities differ from our own? Have advanced aliens discovered everything there is to know about the universe, or are they also looking for answers? The answer to this mystery may lie buried here on Earth.moreless
Exploring the theories and possibilities of free will vs. predetermination.
A look into the nature of reality and the reality, or lack thereof, of perception.
Looking ahead at the potential evolution of robots.
Investigating whether the human brain can be hacked like a computer. Can our secrets, our deepest thoughts, be uncovered - with or without our permission?
Could children eventually be made by parents of the same gender? Could the use of mechanical wombs replace pregnancy?
Perhaps we can learn how alien minds might work by studying the non-humans around us.
Looking at the technology to move to another planet, a new "Earth" - or perhaps Mars - in order to survive the death of our central star, The Sun.
New evidence is showing that deep inside of us there are traces of cells from our relatives.
Scientists search for a particle to explain how matter came to exist.
Can nothing really be nothing? Can empty space really be empty? Could the entire cosmos really have simply emerged from ... emptynothing? Scientists are peering into the void, searching for an answer which may hold the key to knowing whether the universe is fated to expand into oblivion - or contract again like an enormous, beating heart. The quest to understanding "nothing" promises to uncover the very fabric of the universe - and, perhaps, our own eventual fate.moreless
What is it that makes you, you? Are we born with an innate sense of self - or can our identities be altered? Can our deepest, most traumatic memories be changed, or erased - and would that change who we are? To find out, scientists are probing the brain - and peering into the mind. But is it perhaps the soul which holds the key to who we are? As we evolve over time, our appearance transforms, our ideas and ideals sometimes change - but seldom does our inner sense of self. We spend our life trying to understand who we really are - but should we have known all along? Do we ever really change?moreless
Could the key to understanding the universe be biology and not physics? Could it be that the universe is actually alive - a self-replicating super-organism with a heartbeat and a mind? Is it conscious of us - or does it only exist because we are conscious of it?moreless
What do aliens look like? Planetary Scientists and Biologists use what we know of evolution on our own planet combined with information from newly discovered planets that could theoretically support life, to theorize on how an extra-terrestrial might look. Morgan Freeman narrates.moreless
Is death inevitable? Scientists are searching for ways to extend human life and some of the results are startling. Could immortality really be on the horizon?
Negative energy, cosmic strings, wormholes, warp drives, waves of space-time - can any of these things help get us to out into the cosmos by traveling faster than the speed of light? Physicists speculate as to whether "Einstein's universal speed limit" can be broken - and if perhaps Einstein might have been wrong, that the speed of light may not be a universal constant all across the cosmos. All over the world, physicists are attempting to warp, bend, fold or distort space-time in an effort to go faster and faster - and in a universe where the nearest star is 25 trillion miles away, the need for speed is real if we're ever going to get "out there".moreless
