Launched in 1977, NASA's epic Voyager missions revolutionized our understanding of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and their spectacular moons and rings. In 2012, Voyager 1 left our solar system and ushered humanity into the interstellar age. BONUS FILM: Second Genesis explores the scientific quest to find life-or evidence of it-beyond Earth.

The Farthest: Voyager in Space Over 12 billion miles from Earth, a gangly ship sails through interstellar space. It is, by far, the most distant object made by human hands.

In 1977, NASA launched twin Voyager spacecraft. An emotional, cinematic documentary, The Farthest tells their story through first-hand accounts from the passionate men and women who built the ships and guided their journeys. Negotiating a series of perils on its Grand Tour of the outer planets, Voyager beamed back spectacular images of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. But their moons offered bigger surprises - volcanoes, geysers, and a liquid water ocean. On the chance of discovery by intelligent aliens, each spacecraft carried a Golden Record with music and spoken greetings.

The mission has earned its place in the pantheon of human achievements. Long after our sun has flamed out, the Voyagers are likely to be sailing on, perhaps the only evidence that we ever existed.

BONUS FILM: Are we on the brink of a discovery that will rewrite the story of life as we know it? Second Genesis explores the scientific quest to find life beyond Earth - possibly even on a tiny, frozen ocean world right here in our very own solar system.

Wonderful!
Review by Randy A. on 03/01/22 review stating Wonderful!
This was a wonderfully done production. If I have one criticism, its that the final production version is slightly shorter than the version that aired on TV. The music, lyrics, and images near the end of the episode were edited out. And those were some of the most powerful things that concluded the video.

I am thrilled, humbled and amazed by what poets these scientists are. This is a hopeful awe-inspiring spiritual vision at the time most sorely in need of one.
