Running Time: 40 minutes

What are we made of? Where did it all come from? Explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, and our explosive origins.

Connect life on Earth to the evolution of the Universe by following the formation of hydrogen atoms to the synthesis of carbon, and the molecules for life. With expert input from leading scientists—cosmologists, astrophysicists, astrochemists, planetary scientists and astrobiologists—we present humanity’s current understanding of where everything, including us, came from.
