Earth is a planet shaped by life. From the forests that help stabilize our climate, to the winds carrying life-sustaining water and oxygen to far-flung parts of the globe, the fingerprints of life are visible even from many light years away. Journey through space and time to examine life as an essential quality of our home planet Earth. Explore the co-evolution of life and the ways it has transformed Earth’s surface and atmosphere over billions of years. See how light and color can help us spot a living world, even from great distances. “Living Worlds” encourages us to consider how a deeper understanding of our own planet can aid in the search for life across the cosmos, and to reflect on ways we can partner with our living world to ensure our continued survival.  Narrated by Daveed Diggs.
