The First Civilization to Emerge in the Galaxy

Posted by in categories: media & arts, space travel

The Galaxy is approximately 13 billion years old, which makes one wonder — just how many civilizations could have come and gone across that ocean of time? Today, we try something a little bit different for this channel, and imagine when and how the first civilization could have lived. The story is a fiction, but it provides a narrative around which we can more viscerally experience the conditions of the early cosmos, and the fragility of life itself.

Written & presented by Prof David Kipping.
