A new space show opens Friday at the museum in the Planetarium. “The Search for Life: Are We Alone?” is narrated by actor Harrison Ford, and takes visitors on a journey through space and time.

Viewers will explore the links between life on Earth and the potential for life on other planets.

“Featuring breathtaking visualizations based on scientific data and making use of cutting-edge supercomputer simulations by NASA, astrophysicists, and other scientists around the world, this thought-provoking show will transform your view of the cosmos, revealing countless worlds that may harbour life,” said Scott Young, manager of science communications and visitor experiences.

The Search for Life was developed by the American Museum of Natural History in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
