We Are The Aliens

In the 1960s, scientists Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramsinghe came up with the remarkable theory of panspermia: the belief that clouds of alien life forms
sweeping through outer space could "infect" planets with life. At the time, they were ridiculed. But over the last decade, the field of panspermia has
turned into a reputable science. In We Are The Aliens, groundbreaking research into panspermia is explored. NASA now has many departments investigating the possibility of life on other planets and how it could get to earth. Other scientists explore remarkable earth bacteria that survive in extremely hostile conditions as well as bacteria that can thrive inside nuclear reactors. Narrated by renowned actor Ian Holm, We Are The Aliens employs clever effects and graphics for an accessible "sci-fi" documentary that mixes ongoing scientific research with clips from classic science fiction films.
