The award-winning film has been described as “powerful, poetic and cinematic” (Screen Scene), “a stirring salute to human ingenuity” (The Los Angeles Times), and a “dazzling documentary” (The New York Times). What better way to engage your students than with this inspiring true-life story of scientific exploration and engineering prowess at their best.

Launched in 1977, the two Voyager spacecraft explored Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and in 2012, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to enter interstellar space. The film features more than 20 of the original Voyager scientists and engineers, and is filled with exciting stories of near-catastrophic failure and unexpected triumph. Plus the tale of the golden records, which carry sounds, messages and music from Earth for any intelligent beings that may one day find them.
