It has been more than 200,000 years since humans like us (homo-sapiens that is) had emerged from the Rift Valley of East Africa. Since then we have lived as a civilization working together to think and create a better, more advanced knowledge of the world around us. Now humans are located in every part of the world from the south pole to the north but beyond that there are currently only 5 five people who live on the international space station.
The farthest humans have ever traveled from planet Earth was the dark side of the moon but even that is only dipping your toes into the vast cosmic ocean. With projects like Mars one on the drawing board its interesting to think about what the future for the human race may hold and this is what Brian Cox explores in the concluding documentary of Human Universe.
