E6 Escape - Astronaut Chris Hadfield has seen the bullet holes left by asteroids on Earth’s surface. Our planet is vulnerable. Could we ever survive elsewhere?
E7 Terraform - For nearly 4 billion years, life has sculpted almost every part of Earth. But how exactly did life turn this once barren rock into a paradise?
E8 Alien - Is there another planet like ours out there and would it also be packed with life forms like Earth's?
E9 Awakening - Of all life on Earth, we’re the only ones with the smarts to leave our planet. How did our planet make us so intelligent?
