Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the first installment of the popular documentary series – The Cosmos: A Beginners Guide and explore the exciting possibility of life elsewhere in our vast and ancient Cosmos.
This series is the story of everything – from the first microseconds of our universe’s beginning to the exciting future of first contact and homes beyond our Earth. Join Adam Hart-Davis, Janet Sumner and Maggie Aderin for a journey around the planet to discover the latest thinking about the Cosmos.
In the first episode of this series Adam Hart-Davis presents this episode from the Allan Telescope Array (ATA), an impressive group of telescopes in the Mountains of Northern California. It’s at the cutting edge in the search for intelligent life. Adam teams up with Dr Seth Shostack (SETI Institute), an alien hunter with twenty years’ experience under his belt. We find out why the ATA is the most powerful telescope ever built – and learn about future plans for the hugely powerful Square Kilometre Array.
