Many scientists and philosophers have claimed that Earth is an ordinary speck of dust adrift, without purpose or significance, in a vast cosmic sea. Yet current astronomical evidence suggest just the opposite. We now know that a rare and finely-tuned array of physical and chemical factors make Earth precisely suitable for complex life.
Through computer animation, interviews with leading scientists, and spectacular images of Earth and the cosmos The Privileged Planet explores a startling connection between our capacity to survive and our ability to observe and understand the universe. Is this correlation merely a coincidence? Or does it point to a deeper truth about meaning, purpose and design within the cosmos?
This is one hour long, and not religious or preachy, but mainly for those with an interest in science and our origins. It does not give forced conclusions, and is not patronising or superficial. If you take one hour of your time, it will be spent learning some fascinating facts about the universe, life, and our planet.
