Good up to date on humanity colonizing other planets
12 July 2018 | by ecopolstSee all my reviews

The Search for a new earth is a documentary focusing on how humanity can colonize a planet around the star closest to the sun.

Although the name Stephen Hawking is used a lot in marketing the documentary it's more about two young to me unknown scientists who travel the world looking at different technologies. Reviewed are what planets outside the solar system are available for colonization, how to get there and how to colonize.

Limited to 90 mins only so many technologies can be considered. Personal preference decides if some technologies left out should have been included and vice versa. The presentation is to the point and science based but held in a language understandable to most 15 year olds and up. Technology gets dated very fast in this area but the makers of this documentary have done a good job presenting new, modern ways of solving these old issues.

It has become an excellent modern documentary on space tech and planet colonization. Hurry up and watch it before the technology presented gets dated!
