Human Universe With Brian Cox
Wednesday, ABC, 8.30pm
In this five-part series, rock star scientist Brian Cox (right) explores the story of humanity asking questions such as: where are we in the universe? What is our destiny – and thattha of our planet? How did the human brain arise and why did we develop consciousness? Will our search for alien life be successful, or are we alone? This week, Cox explores the ingredients needed for an intelligent civili civilisation to evolve in the universe – the need for a benign star, for a habitable planet, for life to s spontaneously arise on such a planet and the t time required for intelligent life to evolve and build a civilisation.
