THE FARTHEST: VOYAGER IN SPACE (Television Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

The Farthest: Voyager in Space—
great documentary—brings viewers up-to-date on the current travel of Voyager 1 and 2, details hopes and dreams of teams involved in this audacious project, and documents complications and resolutions for the project. Kudos for a well-documented film about the Voyagers and for adequately capturing the ‘amazing’ factor of this engineering feat.
