Storyline

Is it humankind's greatest achievement? 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space. It is the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a plutonium generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out. But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity and all our creations. It could be the only thing to mark our existence. Perhaps some day an alien will find it and wonder. The story of Voyager is an epic of human achievement, personal drama and almost miraculous success. Launched 16 days apart in Autumn 1977, the twin Voyager space probes have defied all the odds, survived countless near misses and almost 40 years later continue to beam revolutionary information across unimaginable distances. With less computing power than a ... Written by avoid sexist language

Wow. Inspiring, brilliant documentary
21 February 2019 | by uberdonkey6See all my reviews

I'm a scientist and used to love astronomy. After watching this film it made me feel that the whole human race owes a debt of gratitude to the architects of Voyager 1 & 2, surely the most important space missions to date. It was pitched at a perfect level, being understandable, thoroughly informative and gripping. Documentaries can be dull at times, but this had me listening to every single word and feeling a rush of almost spiritual elation at what we achieved as a human race. My thanks go to the film makers for such a wonderous and inspiring film, depicting how humans can reach beyond our small world both metaphorically and literally.
