From having to repair the Hubble space telescope 350 miles above Earth to the mistaken belief that scientists had found Martian life in an Arctic meteorite, our journey of discovery has sometimes faltered. But it has also been beautiful: Hubble’s repair resulted in the most stunning images of the universe yet.

The search for life has turned science fiction into science fact. Nearly 50 years of archive footage shows us how far science has come – and how far it still has to go.


Dallas Campbell charts scientific breakthroughs that have transformed how the universe is understood, using footage from the Horizon archives which stretch back almost 50 years. He explores subjects including Einstein's concept of spacetime, alien planets and extra dimensions, and discovers each advance reveals new mysteries to be investigated.
