Power of the Planet
Award-winning astrobiology professor and author of The Knowledge, Lewis Dartnell explores where World History meets Earth Science. How have features of the planet we live on affected the human story? He shows how deep planetary influences are behind our very origins as a species, have affected the history of civilisations for millennia, and still influence modern politics today, as described in his bestseller, Origins: How the Earth Made Us.
