ALIEN WORLDS – Is it worth watching?
As a human being we always remain curious to know or assume “What if?” Alien Worlds is a beautiful representation of our curiosity about this world and especially what lies beyond its boundaries.
Are we really superior on revolutionary ladder or there’s someone above us all?
How we’ve progressed through using spears and arrows ,hunting and gathering to the modern spaceships and tech.
ALIEN WORLDS is a British documentary series divided into four alike-ly brilliant parts which introduce the audience to the worlds of “Atlas”, “Eden,” Janus” and “Terra”, by seeing them we come to know how diverse, and yet constant, life can be.
It takes the experiences of past evolutionary biologist, ecologist and astronomers, and go further inside what life actually is, what it need
and what conserve us in a rich and impressively different range of biotic factors like light, temperature etc.
In doing so, it contrast upon an inbuilt bias we have that life takes distinctive forms.
Hence, we see green forests ,ever-lasting sea filled with life and grasslands ,these places have all of that which takes to sustain life.
but while these places are full of life that doesn’t mean other places in universe can be host to life too.
For example Terra, which is described in Episode 4,it has enormously advanced Alien Civilization.
Its shown in the ep four that how those aliens are terraforming and tryna colonize other planets inside its star system.
This episode features Noor Power Station ,as well as RASOOR (a robot being developed by NASA).
Astrophysicist Adam Frank talks about Area 51,explains why alien life has not been discovered yet, and discuss the possibility of extraterrestrial civilizations elsewhere in the universe.
Astronaut Michael Foale talks a few collision on the Mir space platform and therefore the hazard of space radiation to astronauts.
Astrobiologist Doug Vakoch talks about the Arecibo message and therefore the possibility of communication with extraterrestrial intelligence.
But the very fact of the matter is that living beings do exists in both the recent , sunny zone and cold, dark zone, pentapods
which walk on five spindly limbs and have adapted themselves to measure in every environment offered by the earth .
For instance here on Earth, scorpions, which have remain same in design and adaptability for like
400 million years, and turn up in the most inhospitable conditions, where they survive where many of us would assume no life can exist.
Now,provided,its a fact that no one exactly know that the laws of life which exist on earth will translate in any way,form or shape on other planets
assuming life exist there at all- There is a strong belief among the scientists shown in Alien Worlds that it does exist given the increasing
evidence of oxygen, water etc, the basic building blocks of life, on planets other than our own – and part of the fun of this documentary series
is that is much of it what we are presented with is creative,based on incomplete information.
Featured Swiss astronomer Didier Queloz (Who discovered the first extrasolar planet orbiting a sun-like star,51 pegasi b) states that this series is a masterpiece of pretty impressive CGI-rendered settings, giving us an idea about what alien life might look like.
In a year in which we have found ourselves locked inside our small little worlds of our home and immediate community, series
like Alien Worlds, provide the kind of entertainment we all crave for.

Science in the series is not that complex to understand for a general audience and tbh,
Alien Worlds is a great introduction to the mysteries and secrets of our own impressive world.
Alien Worlds is an amazing piece of work and worth spending the time it takes to watch the four roughly 45-minute episodes.
It make us think if there’s life on other planets? Do other planet exhibit conditions favorable for human life to grow OR there exist a another superior species.
There are certain planets with more than one moon and sun, what it’ll be like to live on them? Do they have civilization?
It make us imagine what it’d be like to come in contact with aliens and what challenges we may have to face in upcoming future.
While we know that there’re chances that they’ll be totally different from us in certain aspects, there could be similarities among us as well and the fear and assumption about aliens we have that they all are enslaving and invading aliens might not be completely true.
Alien Worlds will make people to Google many things described in the series outta curiousity.
The series also throw light to some serious threats our planet is under. Climate change is also addressed.
Conclusively ,Alien Worlds is a piece of “what-if”-ing but it is one based on scientific
knowledge and it discusses the life in the way it makes it’s viewers glued to the screen, and even if we never be able to reach beyond our solar system finding out more about our own planet, is a important thing in the end.
that’s what makes it more interesting to watch this series.
