Episode Summary

How Life Began
Explore the earliest history of our planet and how it evolved to support a rich and vibrant menagerie of creeping, crawling, walking creatures in How Life Began. Visually stunning animation supplemented with expert interviews from leading historians, geologists and physicists, plus expeditions to exotic locations combined with cutting-edge science, help tease out answers about life's origins. Was life triggered by some event (like lightning hitting a pond full of amino acids) or did it float from some distant galaxy on the back of a meteor? Can we create life in a laboratory? Journey back with HISTORY to a young Earth, with massive asteroids colliding into the planet. See single-celled organisms as they divide, mutate and evolve into other, more complex creatures. And go beyond life on Earth as today's leading scientists try to create new life.moreless
