    I absolutely enjoy this program! The sad part is, I have to endure the most obnoxious ads from the Discovery channel for their terrible 'reality based shows'. We all know that these shows are so far from reality it's ridiculous. I've been a fan of 'How The Universe Works' for a long time and always look forward to seeing them. It just takes a lot for me to be subjected to all the other terrible programming on the Science Channel.

      It's entertaining but also becomes annoying when you want to watch something that's real. This video is real but also some facts are based on theory. You have to take what you get & separate the facts from fiction or "educated" guess.

      I agree that this video is very interesting and on point for what we know about the universe. Where we accurately use true science and not science fiction in programming is where things should stay. Bigfoot and alien contacts and other programs like that should not be supported.

    If there happens to be intelligent life such as ours out there somewhere, they're going to be just nearly impossible to find as we are. Do you have any idea how infinitesimally small earth is in the universe? Yes, it would be possible for some intelligence to follow our radio waves, assuming they are close enough to have received them yet.

      Maybe our species is spread all throughout the universe from some major event, in such case we would all potentially be evolving on the same timeline. I'd say if this were the scenario, perhaps we may even find ourselves out there In the next few centuries . If not, remnants of our attempted communications may be discovered many thousands of years later on the other side of this big ol bubble.

    Folks, I love all things outer-space and I’d be as excited as anyone if we discovered life, intelligent or otherwise, on other planetary bodies either in or outside our solar system, or they discovered us - but let’s face it: As much as it saddens me to say so, the chances are better than fair that the human race will go down to its extinction having never detected life anywhere but here. I would dearly love to be wrong, but I have a feeling I’m not.

    We can use our own Galaxy as something to compare other Galaxies. There must be a way to create an atmosphere artificially. Unfortunately it would probably take millennium to create something even close to a safe & more importantly stable conditions. Finding a planet with our gravitational pull is a needle in a haystack with another haystack, for now. Even if we did find one it would be extremely too far to reach. All this sucks

    I always find it strange that you practically never hear of nuclear propulsion when documentaries discuss potential interstellar travel methods... project Orion already demonstrated the feasibility of this type of propulsion system, and it could get us to alpha Centauri in just 100 years using currently existing technology. No need for someday maybe propulsion systems.

      The blame for the failure of the Orion project can be laid mainly on the Outer Space Treaty of 1967.

      You're looking for a Kugelblitz Black Hole. BHs can be microscopic. They just have to be ultra-dense.
      If we surrounded a big ball of iron with big nuclear bombs and lit them all off at the same time, it should compress the ball into a BH.
      And, yes, we could produce an enormous amount of energy by tossing stuff into the accretion disk around the BH.
      Would also be a great way to get rid of radioactive waste and stuff. One problem is that it would be so small it would be almost impossible to get anything into.

      One of my favorite ideas is either the completely unprovable multiverse theory, that there are infinite iterations of the universe each slightly different and likely most of the time there is not life as the ‘rules’ or makeup of the universe don’t support it. But just like life on earth, after an unknown number of random iterations, one had the qualities that could support a small chance of life, and then one or more spaces in the universe (I hope more than one) had the right things happen for life to form, etc.
      It’s just as unprovable as any other idea of why we exist, I just like the through line with what has happened to form life on the Earth.

After all, we are talking about extraterrestrial life. right?! There may be entirely other stuff we never ever could imagine instead of looking for water.

    • Virgil McCabe

      I believe that the reason for this way of thinking is twofold. First is the overwhelming abundance of water in the universe of which the liquid form is an ideal solvent to support chemical processes. The second point is that carbon is the most versatile element to support biological processes and it interacts very well with water. This is not to say that other elements would not support the rise of life but rather that carbon and water would be more likely to produce life due to their versatility in acting with hydrogen and other very abundant elements found in nature

      That is because when Mars had water few billion years ago and when that was the case, Mars did have an
      Atmosphere and that Atmosphere didn't just go away all at once it probably took 100 millions of years for it all to go away and gave the water time to get into the ground and rocks.

    We vastly overestimated the possibility of life out there in the Universe because of the specific conditions on Earth that brought life into existence are so very rare because it requires an impact early on that melts the interior of the early Earth and creates this marvelous magnetic field that protects life from cosmic rays. Because of all the specific conditions required to have life it becomes obvious that life out there is as rare as is the Earth itself.

    For all those that ask "Why haven't we been back to the Moon"
    The bigger question is why did we go to the Moon in the first place ?
    It wasn't because we could, it was because we had to.
    We were in a pissing contest with the Soviet Union and once we won the charm was over.
    Human nature is not driven by by scientific discovery and exploration.
    But it is driven by who can "win".
    It is amazing the United States Moon program even lasted until Apollo 17. We had already won so why keep going ?
    The program was extremely expensive and nothing was new and exciting anymore.
    NASA didn't fail us, we failed NASA.

    I was all for going to Mars until the terraforming part where we pump out toxic gas and release all the planet's frozen water. Did they forget that Mars has no core to keep the water rooted down to the planet? It would all evaporate into space over time and Mars would eventually be left direr than it had been before humans had arrived! All this sounds horrible! Not to mention how we have no idea if Mars has life can't detect yet. Maybe microbial life under the plant's surface or even something else, who knows?. At any rate, we would be destroying any life or possible evidence of life by contaminating the planet.

    I am about the same age as Dr Zubrin, except I got my PhD in cognitive psychology. Back in the 70's when the Apollo program got cancelled, most of us still thought we'd get back to the moon and mars soon. There was an optimism that is dead today. Then Nixon gave China "most favored nation trade status" and dropped all tariffs so corporations could use cheap labor, sending all high paying non-college jobs overseas. Wages stagnated, nobody earns as much as their parents did in terms of buying power, homeless are everywhere and people no longer have that optimism about the future. Americans expect a future with less freedom, more crime, more poverty, crumbling infrastructure and the money to fix it given to the military instead. We let corrupt politicians funnel all our wealth into weapons in exchange for kickbacks from weapons makers, so we are now too broke to accomplish anything other than fighting wars over diminishing resources. Our only hope is that China will colonise space while we watch them on TV, possibly from inside a tent on the sidewalk of a decaying city.

      You assume that life evolves at the same pace everywhere, but there is as likely that live evolves as it doesn’t. Even is there where other systems with all the same conditions as Earth does not mean that life would evolve since it took an almost infinite series of events at the right time for live to have a chance to evolve and an other whole series for life to evolve intelligence so in places it might take 5 billion years and in another 20 billion.

    Robert Zubrin's constant whiney preachey I have a PhD therefore superior is very off putting. His I'm cross attitude was even criticised by that government review panel. He alone caused me to stop watching this. The British narrator was, as always, very endearing.

    what happens if when you warm up mars, it then cools the earth. Why do humans think they can change things like this. not saying this is what would happen, but we don’t know that.

    Why wouldnt you only send 6months worth of supplies at a time. Once on mars send a ship of supplies only therefore, 6 months later our astronauts receive a resupply vehicle bringing anything needed to help survive a 1yr stay on mars.

      The answer my friend is 42, courtesy of the Hitchhiker's Guide too the Universe.
      Seriously though this question led me down a rabbit hole way to early in the morning.
      My best guess is the History Channel under the title you seek.
      Best wishes and happy hunting.
      P.S. If you find it let me know, please and thank you

      @DeereJohn haha thank you so much for the effort 😃. So a little history behind my question, this is my favorite show going on about 10 years now. I got interested in space and science about that long ago (can’t believe it took until my 40’s to catch the bug lol) and of all the documentaries I’ve collected over the years How The Universe Works is my favorite. I like both of the narrator’s and the visual has always been spectacular. Anyway I work in the middle of nowhere on a rotating schedule of days and nights, and when on nights I use shows like this to fall asleep and when I watched this one last week I didn’t recognize it so that’s why I asked. As soon as I got home for my days off I searched and discovered they have started season 11 so I bought the season pass. I’m about to start watching it now so I’ll let you know if I see this episode in it. Thanks again for the reply.

    i drilled wells all over the country and beyond close to 5 plus miles down, at every depth from 0' to 30,000' the there is water and it is a nuisance in production, it could go much much deeper then we will ever reach and even imagine possible, this could be where life on mars and venus could be and we will never know it...
