Birth of Planet Earthhttps://vimeo.com/410003388/569b6d15da Here's the twisted tale of our planet's origins. Scientists believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to a billion planets roughly the size of our own. This film employs advance, data-driven, cinematic-quality visualizations to explore some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet in the wake of our solar system's violent birth? What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?
