Description

In this rousing testament to the desire to explore the unknown, The Farthest tells the story of the Twin Voyager probes launched into space in 1977, which have now visited Jupiter, Neptune and beyond. Carrying recordings and images of life on earth, if there are sentient beings out there, the Voyager will reach them—though long after we are gone. In present day they are entering deep space and exiting our solar system with their journey set to continue for millions of years, as possibly the only evidence of our existence. Featuring stunning imagery from the Voyager feeds, this cinematic experience celebrates a spectacular human achievement.
