Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Harrison Ford, this 35-minute show is designed for general audiences, and includes a live segment on the current night sky.

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