Are we alone in this Universe? If aliens exist, would they be friendly or hostile? Have they in fact already visited Earth?
The Royal Observatory Greenwich explores a subject that has been obsessing us for hundreds of years in Alien Revolution, an intimate look at the history of our relationship with extra-terrestrial life through science and culture.
From the writings of 16th-century astronomer Copernicus to modern day scientists still searching for life amongst the stars, the exhibition takes a whistle-stop tour of our on-going fascination with alien life, including children’s favourite outer-space creature, E.T.; the intrepid Mars Curiosity rover on its solitary mission, and American couple Betty and Barney Hill who claimed to have been abducted by aliens in 1961.
