A journey through 12,000 years, "Humanity from Space" shows how seemingly-small flashes of innovation have changed the course of civilization - innovations that touch all of us today in ways unimaginable to our ancestors. We’ll gaze into the future at the new challenges we will inevitably face in order to survive as our global population soars because of our success. In every case, we’ll look at our progression in a unique and surprising way, revealing unforgettable facts and connections.
To visualize these stories, cutting-edge technology is used to turn raw data into authentic moving images, building on expertise from a previous (and highly-praised) project: "Earth From Space." Using this technique, we can map humanity’s behavior in stunning, never-before-seen detail, revealing how our civilization grew, how it works today, and what the future might hold.
