THE FARTHEST tells the captivating tales of the people and events behind one of humanity’s greatest achievements in exploration: NASA’s Voyager mission, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this August. The twin spacecraft—each with less computing power than a cell phone—used slingshot trajectories to visit Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. They sent back unprecedented images and data that revolutionized our understanding of the spectacular outer planets and their many peculiar moons.

Still going strong four decades after launch, each spacecraft carries an iconic golden record with greetings, music and images from Earth—a gift for any aliens that might one day find it. Voyager 1, which left our solar system and ushered humanity into the interstellar age in 2012, is the farthest-flung object humans have ever created. A billion years from now, when our sun has flamed out and burned Earth to a cinder, the Voyagers and their golden records will still be sailing on—perhaps the only remaining evidence that humanity ever existed.

"For any believer in humankind’s instinct to transcend boundaries, the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes, and the NASA team that produced them, inspire awe. THE FARTHEST, a dazzling documentary written and directed by Emer Reynolds, illustrates why. "
Andy Webster - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Imagine the late Chuck Berry and Carl Sagan dancing to a cosmic beat, and you've caught the central idea behind The Farthest, an irresistible NASA instant classic about the conquest of space - via the Voyager missions."
John Hartl - SEATTLE TIMES

"In Reynolds' sympathetic hands, this becomes a reassuring message in troubled times for the human race, and one that should connect powerfully with global audiences if given the opportunity."
Fionnuala Halligan - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
