Storyline

Imagine you're Alan Eustace. You're in your 50's, you've got two young daughters and a loving wife at home and you're the Senior Vice-President of 'Knowledge' at Google. But none of that matters to you right now -- because in less than a minute the giant balloon strapped to your back is going to inflate to the size of a football stadium as it carries you over 135,000 feet straight up into the stratosphere -- higher than any man has ever gone without a rocket ship! 14 Minutes From Earth documents every harrowing moment of Alan's unprecedented mission to promote science and space-exploration. From a crazy idea sketched on a napkin, to dangling in outer space wondering if he'll ever see his family again - you'll experience every pulse-racing failure and feel-good triumph of the world's most unlikely space explorer. Shot in complete secrecy over the course of two years, you'll take a never before seen look at history in the making as a small but dedicated team dares to push the boundaries...

"Hearing Alan's voice means he's alive". Phew, thank goodness the wise engineers helped us pathetically moronic non-engineers understand such a thing. Ugh.
