An engrossing immersive theater experience, The Search for Life: Are We Alone? launches visitors on an awe-inspiring trip through space and time—from the depths of Earth’s oceans to the outer reaches of the cosmos—to explore the links between life on Earth and the potential for life on other planets. 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).
