If you have ever thought that out there in the universe there has to be some sort of intelligent life then this is video is something that you just need to watch. Its called quite simply Earth Proxima and it follows a project to build a telescope capable of finding an Earth type planet around Alpha Centauri the nearest neighbour to our own sun. Obviously, the search for life out there in space is not easy and maybe there is life on a planet somewhere, but they may not be as advanced as we are or they may be so advanced that we are not of interest to them. Yet, if we could find signs of life on a distant planet, wouldn’t that be something?
Since astronomers first discovered exoplanets in 1995, we’ve come to learn that there are a staggering amount of planets out there in the universe. But, we have yet to find one that’s habitable, aside from our own. The Search for Earth Proxima is a short documentary about a group of scientists and their mission to build a telescope to hunt for an Earth-like planet around our closest neighbor: Alpha Centauri.
