On the final night of their astronomical adventure, Professor Brian Cox (who seems to do most of the talking, which much be strange for Dara) and Dara O Briain discuss meteors, comets and asteroids, and examine what the study of them reveals about the origins of life. Liz Bonnin meets the Nasa team tasked with tracking any space objects on a collision course with Earth, and Brian and Dara announce the results of the experiment carried out by viewers to explore an uncharted area on the surface of Mars. For those of you following Gordon following the polar bears, the final instalment with an increasingly skinny Lyra.
