About the Event

12 BILLION MILES AND COUNTING.. The Farthest is a FEATURE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT NASA’S VOYAGER MISSION & HUMANKIND’S FIRST INTERSTELLAR JOURNEY

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 modern hearing aid, they have unlocked the stunning secrets of our Solar System on a journey as revolutionary as the first circumnavigation of the globe and humankind's first footprint on the moon.

Followed by a discussion with Carolyn Porco,  the leader of the imaging science team on the Cassini mission in orbit around Saturn from 2004 to 2017, a veteran imaging scientist of the Voyager mission to the outer solar system in the 1980s, and an associate member of the New Horizons mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt.
