37 years ago, Carl Sagan imagined an ‘Encyclopaedia Galactica’, a “vast repository of the knowledge of many worlds”. “Imagine” he pondered, “the impact on us if we could study a rich compilation of not merely one world but billions.”

Parallax is a five-part series of video essays that wonders what this Encyclopaedia Galactica might look like.

Find out, in this survey of an alien world.
