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.

On alien planets, they rain from the sky as scalding iron. On distant moons, even at hundreds of degrees below zero, they slosh around in pristine lakes of methane. They can cover entire planets in miles-deep oceans of electrified hydrogen metal. Or erupt on alien worlds through miles-high geysers. They churn in the interiors of dead stars and even our own planet. They're so rare in the universe, they almost don't exist, but these are the magical liquids of our liquid universe.

Twenty five years after the death of the brilliant and charismatic Richard Feynman, this fascinating film explores the remarkable life of the Nobel Prize winner who was one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. Drawing on the BBC's earlier iconic films about Feynman and new interviews with those who lived and worked alongside him, we discover what made this extraordinary man such a genius.
