World-famous scientist Stephen Hawking presents a series of fun physical and mental challenges to three ordinary people. Can they think like a genius? The task is to work out the likelihood of alien life out there in the universe.
Cue an extraordinary journey of discovery, involving tons of sand, huge machinery, some straightforward thinking and several amazing, head-exploding reveals.
The team discovers how many stars there are in the night sky, how to look for planets around those stars and how many of those planets could harbor life. To watch the team members struggle with their own discoveries is almost as much fun as guessing the outcomes of the experiments.
