movie facts

We have always been curious about life outside of our planet, solar system, even our galaxy. We have always imagined advanced extra-terrestrial civilizations – spaceships capable of unimaginable speeds, powerful weapons, sprawling cities. Evidence of extra-terrestrial beings and civilizations have yet to be presented. However, a Russian astrophysicist, Nicolai Kardashev, was the first to try to analyze extra-terrestrial civilizations against the laws of physics and the laws of thermodynamics. He used a ranking system based on the total energy output that is used as a guide to explore the dynamics of advanced civilizations. Type I civilizations can harness the energy emitted by an entire planet. A Type II civilization harnesses the energy output of a star. A Type III civilization can harness the energy output of an entire galaxy. And where is Earth? We are a Type 0 civilization – harnessing our energy from dead plants such as oil and coal. In a 100-200 years, we may possibly attain a Type I civilization status.
