For centuries, mankind has struggled to understand the profound complexity governing the principles of life and the universe. This quest has taken him on scientific journeys far and wide: from the exquisitely simple atomic structure of our DNA to the hellish and chaotic depths of our sun, the energy source for all life on Earth, and beyond. Scientific, artistic, and social discoveries are what drive us as humans, and what distinguish us from all other species with which we share this planet. One of the fundamental questions that still troubles us is how life began on this planet and whether it exists elsewhere in the universe. This deep desire to understand and search for life has taken humans on exploratory journeys to the extremes of our planet: from the depths of our oceans to the heights of our mountains, and from the cold of Antarctica to the darkness of space.
