Online media for this show is not available on our website.

Episode Details

There are three questions that speak directly to human uniqueness and purpose. 1) Does intelligent non-human life exist anywhere in the universe?; 2) Given the fullness of time, will human beings spread across the galaxies?; and 3) Is there something special about this universe that causes or even requires self-aware creatures like human to appear? Today's experts look at humankind and whether the evolution of conscious beings was an accident or a necessity. Joining host Robert Kuhn are Nobel Laureate and physicist Leon Lederman; evolutionary biologist Francisco Ayala; planetary scientist Bruce Murray and mathematician Frank Tipler; and sci-fi novelist GregoryBenford.
