Join us for a screening of The Farthest: Voyager in Space. This documentary tells the captivating tales of the people and events behind one of the greatest achievements in space 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, sending back unprecedented images and data that revolutionized our understanding of these spectacular planets and their many peculiar moons. Each spacecraft carries an iconic golden record with greetings, music, and images from Earth—a gift for any extraterrestrials that may one day find them. Imagine, a billion years from now, the Voyagers and their golden records will still be sailing on. The Farthest will air on Rocky Mountain PBS on Wednesday, August 23 at 8 p.m.
Presented in partnership with http://www.denverfilm.org/ and http://www.rmpbs.org/home/.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
