After the incredible scientific achievements in the outer reaches of our solar system, NASA’s pioneering Voyager program now offers a near “permanent” record of our existence here on earth. A thought-provoking film, The Farthest is a beautifully crafted production about the creation, deployment and legacy of the Voyager spacecraft which is now traveling through interstellar space. As the crowning achievement for a generation of scientists, this is a surprisingly emotional film for many of interviewees whose excitement about Voyager has never dimmed (Klaus Ming August 2017).
