Life: Destiny or Chance probes a fundamental question of existence: Did life come about by chance, or are the universe’s physical laws are so fine-tuned that the formation of life was inevitable? This documentary seeks to find the answer to this question by thoroughly examining two important and integral components of life: dust and water.
In a very scientific and objective manner, the film reveals that millions of dust particles began to stick together due to gravity, slowly forming masses that eventually constituted planets. Interplanetary dust particles which contain hydrogen and carbon particles were then exposed to oxygen present in the atmosphere and created water particles that are considered to be the fundamental building blocks of life.
Life: Destiny or Chance reveals that the abundance of water available on Earth’s surface has provided favourable conditions to support life on the planet.
