Out there

For thousands of years, mankind thought Earth was the centre of the universe. Thanks to our curiosity, our imagination and our thirst for knowledge, we now know that planets like Earth are nothing unusual in the cosmos.

Our Sun is just an ordinary star – one of hundreds of billions in our Milky Way. Using increasingly powerful telescopes and space probes, mankind is exploring ever larger parts of the universe. What we've found so far has exceeded scientists' wildest expectations: most stars have planets – alien solar systems are the rule rather than the exception. There's an incredible variety of worlds out there in the vastness of the cosmos.

Yet one question remains unanswered: is there life out there?
