Join leading astronomers on a visual journey beyond our solar system in search of planets like Earth.

Using CGI animation, we’ll explore bizarre worlds that stretch our imagination: planets with iron rain and hot ice, with diamonds everywhere, and endless oceans of gas.

Planets with abnormal orbital patterns and planets with no pattern at all that drift alone in the Milky Way. Planets so strange we never could have predicted them before. Could life exist there?

In the search for another Earth, astronomers hope to discover other terrestrial planets. These bodies may have a rocky terrain and may even hold water on their surfaces.

The most Earth-like planet discovered thus far is Gliese 581c, which orbits near the area known as the habitable zone.

This elusive zone, also called the “Goldilocks Zone,” lies between the star and its planets, and may allow life to survive—it is not too hot and not too cold—on the surface of a planet.

    Interesting tho I take any thing from National Geographic with a grain of salt, especially since they serve America and its master, the secrecy-driven types whom really run the show…add NASA to the mix and that grain of salt just became the whole ocean. NASA’s job, against it’s constitutional ownership by the people, is to obfuscate, lie, withhold, ridicule it’s questioners and provide intelligence in order for the secrecy bangster types whom own it can scam other spacefaring earth nations from withholding what they really discover. Its like the medevil inquisition in the 21st century. Check http://www.marsanomalyresearch.com

      Addendum: On completing watching this docu I felt we were being feed part disinformation. ie the eliptical orbit of the one moon and planet and also the rouge planets. Maybe Nibiru is being prepped to us as acceptable. Also, I felt that many of the (NASA) mouthpieces seemed to be judging the rest of the galaxy as if its all uniformly going to be like Sol and its wanderers, albeit with slightly different skins. NASA knos full well about the warnings to stay away from going back to the moon and is scamming other spacefaring governments too & they certainly know about the races living on Mars, the not-so-red planet. After all it has far more real estate, as we see it, than does earth. I think if they do “find” an m-class planet similar enough to earth, then it will be a made up creation of theirs, with info they can control and use for their own nefarious agenda

        A 40 year cover up involving thousands of people around the world by a government that can’t even keep their own personal lives out of the news. Yeah, that’s believable.

        Remember kids, don’t do drugs.
