What do the father of the nuclear age, the Italian American physicist Enrico Fermi and a young European traveller by the name of Mubarak Bin London have in common? And why would it lead you to one of the most inhospitable and inaccessible places on earth, a place which Fermi hadn't ever set foot in? In the second episode of the series, Alien Landscapes, Utsav takes you to the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia and tells you why it has become a hotbed for an emerging science which could hold the secrets of the cosmos. Tune in, and discover that sometimes you don't need to go to space to understand what's really out there.
