More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space - the first human-made object ever to do so.
This exquisite Oscar and BAFTA nominated science film documents the story of NASA’s finest, noblest contribution to scientific understanding. The launching of Voyager I and II, in 1977, was a remarkable, one of a kind mission thanks to a specific alignment of the planets in our solar system. Every few years, for two weeks, scientists would make jaw dropping discoveries as these space ships boldly went where no spaceship had ever gone before; overcoming new huge obstacles as they went.
"Reynolds’ film conveys a legitimate, stirring sense of awe about mankind’s innate desire for adventure, discovery and communion with all that surrounds it." - Nick Schager, Variety
"This exquisite, exemplary science documentary, directed by Irish editor turned helmer Emer Reynolds, recounts the rich and fascinating story of the Voyager mission, arguably Nasa’s finest, noblest contribution to scientific understanding." - Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
