The Most Unknown is a documentary from Motherboard, Vice's tech and science arm. And following its run in cinemas, it'll come exclusively to Netflix.

The Most Unknown seeks to tackle the biggest questions in science. It sent nine scientists around the world to find out about the definition of consciousness, what dark matter is made of and where life originated. Taskmaster, this isn't.

"The film is an experiment," Motherboard said, "one in which we posited that by tossing scientists who'd never met into a petri dish of our own design, we'd learn something about what it means to dedicate one's life to questions we're not yet sure we can answer."

The film will launch in cinemas on 18th May, and come to Netflix in August. The streaming service will hold exclusive rights to it for two years.

Fancy a taster of it? You're in luck. Motherboard will show excerpts of it on its site and its various social media channels two weeks after it airs on Netflix.
