Humanity’s potential seems limitless. But could we become as powerful as God? Scientific breakthroughs grant our species seemingly divine abilities. Biologists tinkering with DNA are figuring out ways to grow new life forms, while neuroscientists try to create artificial consciousness. Statisticians around the world are using big data to predict the future and computer scientists have discovered a “God algorithm” that could solve any global problem in an instant. But to truly become God, we not only have to be all knowing, but all being. Quantum physicists are figuring out how to teleport matter at the speed of light!
In this fifth season, Morgan Freeman walks us Through The Wormhole and into the mind-bending realities defining our universe. Exploring topics from gravity to poverty, these ten episodes set out on scientific quests for answers to our most puzzling questions. Is there such a thing as a shadow universe? When did time begin? Is a zombie apocalypse possible? Does the ocean think? Quantum physicists, biologists, statisticians, neuroscientists, and more of the world s greatest minds take a synergistic approach to provide practical answers and pose even more questions in an attempt to explain the unexplained.
Through the Wormhole episode 47 – Will We Become God ?
Academy Award-winning actor and space enthusiast Morgan Freeman executive produces hosts and narrates this exploration of the greatest mysteries of the universe. This new series, produced by Freeman’s Revelations Entertainment, seeks the answers to the big questions: Are we alone? Where did we come from? Is there life on other planets?
From the latest work at NASA and private enterprise facilities to the latest theories from academics and researchers, this series looks at black holes, colonizing the planets, string theory and more. Science Channel invites viewers on the journey as Morgan Freeman picks up where Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos” left off and explores the new frontiers of what is beyond Earth.
Through the Wormhole brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science — Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and more — to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe.
