Curious about what humans might find when they venture beyond the Milky Way 150 years from now?

Then stream Living Universe, a four-part trip to an Earth-like planet called Minerva B, debuting this Thursday, October 25, on subscription streamer CuriosityStream.

A feature version of the speculative sci-fi/documentary has been released in theaters overseas:

Living Universe uses real scientific research to propel the CGI animated sci-fi adventure of the Aurora, an interstellar starship piloted by Artemis, an artificial intelligence entity.

Will Aurora and Artemis find life of Minerva B after their 50-year journey? The final episode is titled “Contact,” so perhaps.

The science behind Living Universe comes from NASA’s Gentry Lee, chief engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory; Sara Seager, an astrophysicist at MIT; and David Charbonneau, an astronomer at Harvard University.

Curious about CuriosityStream? Subscriptions start at $2.99 a month and $19.99 annually, after a week-long free trial. You can subscribe at or via a range of devices. You can also watch 18 free episodes without signing up.
