Could we be unique in the universe or is there another planet similar to earth somewhere in the cosmos? Is it possible that our nearest star is home to another earth-like planet? Earth sized planets have been hard to find, but indirect methods are coming on line to give scientists a good survey of how many such bodies may be in the universe. How rare would it be to find life on another earth-like planet?

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.

Once they were dreaded and thought to be dragons eating the sun, but modern science has dispelled mythology, and we now look forward to total solar eclipses as one of the most spectacular phenomena in the heavens. Explore the complex movements of Earth, moon and sun that produce these unusual events, and find out why we may be the only intelligent beings in the known universe to witness eclipses like we see on Earth. Synthetic eclipses also figure into the science in the form of instruments called 'coronagraphs'. They blot out the sun and reveal its corona, uncovering secrets which, while enlightening, also warn of a disaster that could make our advanced technology crash and burn. Finally, the program goes into deep space, where the tiny eclipses caused by planets circling distant stars are now beginning to reveal hundreds more stars where exoplanets exists - perhaps even those in habitable zones like the Earth.

When man finally broke free of the Earth's gravitational pull the dream of traveling to other planets became a reality. Today scientists are proposing a bizarre array of technologies in the hope of traveling faster through space: from space craft sporting sails that catch laser beams, to propulsion engines powered by a bizarre entity known as anti-matter.
