Summary There is an unexplored planet in the Solar System. A strange world of bizarre creatures locked in a fight for survival. This planet is the human body and it's teeming with unknown ecosystems. Our bodies are home to a trillion cells that are not us - but are very much the making of us. Bugs cling to our skin and grasp onto our hair. They live inside our gut, in our blood and even in our brain. They determine our health, body shape, mood and even our behaviour. We are super-organisms, part of an interconnected web of life. This hidden world is brought to life through fascinating personal accounts, breakthroughs in scientific insights and by the use of the latest imaging technologies
