Nowadays human civilization has spread across the face of the planet. More than 7 billions
people are linked globally in terms of ecosystem, economical interaction, cultural activities and other aspects. Yet, many people still wonder if other civilization is out there in the
Universe. The possibility that we are not alone is a thought so compelling it will surely drive us forward in our search for answers. One typical example is the SETI project which the idea can be traced back to as early as 1896.
We appreciate profoundly how life on Earth can exist through microbes to thrive, even under extreme conditions ranging from ocean floor flowing with super-heated water at 400¢XC
rich in sulphur, up to cold, dry deserts of Antarctica, and four
kilometres down deep within the Earth's crust. All these places appear utterly alien and hostile. What about alien life beyond our planet?
The new 3D fulldome show "We are Aliens 3D", launched in January 2014, will illustrate how our understanding of life on Earth guides the hunt for alien life elsewhere in the
Universe. Our journey will explore the most likely havens of
life, starting from neighbouring worlds such as Mars and Europa, and
other planetary systems beyond the Solar System. If intelligent beings exist on these exoplanets, will they be searching for we humans too? Perhaps one day we may finally connect with a vast network of intelligent civilisations scattered among the stars. They will be no longer aliens but neighbours in the Universe.

Microbes can survive in extreme hostile environments on Earth, permitting astronomers to believe that there may be chance to discover life on other celestial bodies of the Solar System.
The rover is drilling deep below the Martian surface to extract soil for laboratory tests,
looking for evidence of water or microbes.
Scientists estimate that beneath the icy shell of Europa may be an ocean which may even contain life.
The Goldilocks Zone is a region determined by the surface temperature and size of a star.
Within this zone, a planet will have the suitable temperature for water to exist in liquid form,
which is conducive to the formation of life.
Perhaps one day we can connect with extraterrestrial civilizations and form alliances,
sharing knowledge and experience.
