Summary:
"All life on earth shares some of the same genetic code, forming a kind of evolutionary tree. Could that tree have its deepest roots in the stars? This fascinating program looks at how the research of scientists into the origin of life points towards the cosmos, as in the panspermia theory which posits the "seeding" of earth with organic compounds by comet or asteroid collisions."--Container.
