Many argue that flying saucers and other extra-terrestrial space ships continuously visit the earth. If that were true, what kinds of technologies would such alien spacecraft require? And do eyewitness reports of UFO sightings jibe with modern theories of how interstellar travel might be possible? Authors, astronomers and theoretical physicists weigh in with the blueprints for inertia-cancelling devices, nuclear-powered craft, antimatter propulsion systems and even warp drives. Based on Einstein's theories and countless scientific studies, we'll find out how these visitors might bridge the vast distances between the stars. And if they could survive such hazardous journeys, are they flesh and blood or intelligent machines?The Universe: UFOs The Real Deal - Series 6, Ep 6 of 7

They sound something alike ... but they are oh-so different. Pulsars are tiny - only a few miles across - but they spin as fast as a kitchen blender and sweep the sky with beacons of radiation that make them appear to flash on and off. They have unbelievably strong magnetic fields, are more accurate than atomic clocks ... and they can even tell aliens just where to find the Earth! Quasars are at the other end of the spectrum.

The search for extra-terrestrial life is on. Earth is perfect for life. Our temperate planet is neither too near nor too far from the Sun. With Venus too close and Mars too distant, if they once had life, they most likely don’t have now. The only other possibility in the Solar System is Europa, a moon of Jupiter. There, in an ocean beneath Europa’s icy surface, bacteria-like organisms could feed on volcanic vents. But the best chance of life is on Earth-like planets around other stars.

The Sun is our local star - a nuclear reactor at the hub of the Solar System. Each second, the Sun loses four million tonnes of mass - energy that will keep the Sun blazing for another five billion years. Yet the Sun, overall, is no denser than yoghurt, a cauldron of incandescent gas spewing flares and prominences. Electrically charged particles stream from the Sun - the solar wind. Twists in the magnetic field trigger gigantic ejections that turn the wind into a storm.

The measurement and scale of the Universe. How far is a star or a galaxy? Distances are so vast they are described in light years - the distance light travels in a year. Nearby stars are measured by trigonometry - the technique of parallax. Farther out, astronomers use so-called "standard candles". The pulsing and luminosity of Cepheid Variable stars works up to 90 million light years. Then, Type 1A supernovae are the candle. Beyond that the "redshift" of galaxies reveals their distances.
