We are the Aliens is an idea that life on Earth came from another planet, this idea has been around as a modern scientific theory since the 1960s when it had been proposed by Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe.
At the time they were ridiculed for their theory, known as panspermia. But now, with growing evidence|proof, it’s back in vogue and had even being studied by NASA.
In this documentary we meet the scientists on a mission to get to the bottom of the beginnings of life on Earth. From a team in Texas who are lovingly building a robotic submarine known as DEPTHX to explore a moon of Jupiter, to Southern India where they’re investigating a mysterious red rain that} fell for 2 months in 2001.
According to local scientist Godfrey Louis, the rain contains biological cells unlike any he had seen before, with no DNA and the ability to replicate at 300°C. Louis has come to the conclusion that the cells are extra-terrestrial in origin.
Could all this really be proof that we are the aliens?
