 The We Are Aliens show, narrated by Rupert Grint, focuses on the possibility of there being life elsewhere in the universe, and the science used in searching for it.  Funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the show introduces concepts such as the "Goldilocks Zone" for habitable planets, the field of astrobiology, and the search for exoplanets, in a well informed and charming way.

The search for extraterrestrial life is a fascinating context in which to approach a number of science topics, and so there are resources available for physics, developed by Project Director Anu Ojha; for chemistry, developed by Judith Green and Steve Althorpe; and for biology, developed by Chris Carr.

The We Are Aliens planetarium show can be seen at the National Space Centre in Leicester and more information about NSC Creative and their work is available here.
