Synopsis:
Humankind's Greatest Journey. More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space - the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager 1 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. The Voyager mission revolutionised our understanding of our Solar System's outer planets - two spacecraft visiting Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune on their incredible journeys and in all likelihood they will outlive humanity.
'The Farthest' celebrates these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.

Just my thoughts - others will disagree! - The Farthest review by CG

Spoiler Alert
30/01/2018

I thought the film was interesting - albeit it could have been somewhat condensed. There's an awful lot of - here we are at NASA 'Ra'Ra'Ra'........

This is understandable given the subject matter - what the satellites have achieved is truly, and quite literally, out of this world!

But the film could achieve the same message, in a shorter format - and probably impact the viewer even more!

Decent documentary on a stellar subject. - The Farthest review by MF

Brilliant pictures, especially of Jupiter and Uranus's satellite Miranda, but too many "talking heads". This could have done with a simple voice-over. There was too much emphasis on the Golden Record which, in my opinion, is a total waste of time. I agree with another viewer who said this could be shorter and have more impact. But it is worthwhile for any fan of astronomy and astrophysics.

A fantastic documentary - The Farthest review by JB

A documentary worth watching, mesmerising pictures of the Solar System, although it could do with less interviewing of random people. I agree with the above review, shorter and more precise.
