Ep: 3 "Endless Forms Most Beautiful"
Discover the science that rules our living planet. In this beautiful and definitive five-part series, physicist Brian Cox reveals how a few fundamental laws gave birth to the most complex, diverse and unique force in the universe - life. Light, gravity, time, matter, energy: they are the building blocks of everything, from the smallest microbe to the biggest galaxy. From the Philippines to the US, Madagascar and Mexico, Dr. Cox explores how Earth became the rich, diverse biosphere it is today; what determines shape, movement and longevity; and whether the conditions for life could be repeated elsewhere in the universe.
