Editorial Reviews

Imagine a world like our own, just 6.5 light years away - but teeming with life forms unlike anything found on Earth. Take a simulated journey into the near future, where astronomers and biologists alike marvel at the potential of Darwin IV, a nearby planet with two suns, 60% gravity and an atmosphere capable of supporting life. Having identified Darwin as a likely home for life, scientists send a series of unmanned probes to the planet. Initially, the expectation is to find microscopic life. But the probes soon find themselves in the middle of a developed ecosystem, teeming with diverse creatures of all sizes. Peering through the "eyes" of the probes, marvel at the planet's bizarre inhabitants - like the lumbering Groveback, which supports a mini forest of vegetation on its back; deadly Prongheads who hunt in packs like wolves; and the graceful Gyrosprinter, an elk-like creature with a body dotted by luminescent biolights. The look and biology of each animal is based on the laws of evolution and physics, then modeled to fit the hypothetical environment of Darwin IV. Leading minds in the fields of paleontology, astrophysics and astrobiology explain how these creatures might evolve otherworldy characteristics like hollow bodies, "jet" propulsion and piercing tongue skewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son loves this video. January 7, 2009
My savante, peacenik kid made me watch it. I must admit, a little riveting. I even stayed awake and learned something. Good stuff. I might even have to admit I am a little hooked! I am more Noah's Ark than all this, but it was definitely a cool, educational show. I think it is well worth purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Originally saw it on the Discovery Channel July 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been wanting to see this again for some and came across it on Amazon. This is one of the best documentaries I have seen and though completely theoretical, it does open ones imagination to the wonders of nature and the possibilities that exist beyond our planet.

The computer generated graphics are outstanding the story line very creative making this seems less educational and more entertaining though it is both. I was captivated by every minute of this show.
