August 9th marks the Planet Earth premiere of Essential Media’s feature documentary Living Universe – screening in cinemas across Australia.
Narrated by everyone’s favourite scientist Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Australian astrophysicist Professor Tamara Davis, the film tackles the momentous question: are we alone?
An interstellar adventure searching for life on another planet, the film follows the 50-year journey of a starship piloted by artificial intelligence, Captain Artemis (voiced by Prof Davis) to an imaginary planet Minerva B, set 150 years in the future. The speculative voyage is presented alongside interviews with the world’s top scientific visionaries, drawing from their expertise to offer insights into our collective future exploring deep space.
Dr Karl, Professor Tamara Davis, and special scientist guests including NASA Ames Research Center’s Alexandre M. Kling and exoplanet specialist Megan Shabram, will also attend select Q&A screenings nationally to answer the audience’s burning questions, including a screening as part of Sydney Science Festival 2018 (7 – 19 August) on 14 August.
