    To The Extremes, Season 2 | Episode 4

    Science is all about crossing frontiers. It's what we don't know that keeps us pushing the envelope of what is technologically possible to learn more about ourselves and our place in the universe. Our hunger for knowledge is what pushed us past the sound barrier, launched us into space and put footprints on the moon. Our need to know has broken countless frontiers, but there's still more out there and crossing those could bring answers to some of our biggest questions. In this episode of Known Universe we explore the two most daunting frontiers left in science, the deep ocean and deep space. Exploring both could give us answers and insights into some of humanity's most vexing questions…is there life elsewhere in the universe, how did the Earth come to be, how did life originate and what is the ultimate fate of the universe. We're closer now than we've ever been to answering these questions, but there remain immense challenges and dangers in making the attempt.
