In the first half of the 20th century, pioneering geneticist Nikolai Vavilov traveled five continents to assemble a treasury of the world's seeds. He dreamed that science could be the means to end hunger, and his refusal to tell a scientific lie cost him his life. Witness the heroism of his colleagues and its direct impact on our lives in one of the most stirring stories in the history of science.
Embark on a voyage of discovery through the evolution of consciousness with stops in ancient Greece and a visit to the largest life form on Earth. This journey takes us into the poignant dream of an abandoned orphan who opened the way to our understanding of the architecture of thought and introduced a vision of a galactic network of thought.

Sagan goes on to realize his childhood dreams, carrying their research forward and communicating its significance to the whole world.
A hidden underground network — a collaboration of four kingdoms of life — is revealed. Explore a true first-contact story between humans and beings who communicate with a symbolic language and have maintained a representative democracy for tens of millions of years.
A mysterious untold story is brought to life: a scientist figures out how to go to the Moon while fighting for his life in a World War I trench.
