2/21/18. I love documentaries about Space, but for some reason this only came across as okay. I thought it would have been a more scientific retelling of everything Voyager has done, and it has done a lot, but instead it was just people involved talking what they did. I suppose hearing it first-hand could make it seem more inspiring, but just a documentary about the mission the Voyager set out to accomplish would have been a lot more interesting (at least to me). There, however, was some good NASA footage, but it should have included more!

It is one of humankind's greatest achievements. 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.

The Synopsis for The Farthest (2017) 1080p
Is it humankind's greatest achievement? 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space. It is the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a plutonium generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager 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. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity and all our creations. It could be the only thing to mark our existence. Perhaps some day an alien will find it and wonder. The story of Voyager is an epic of human achievement, personal drama and almost miraculous success. Launched 16 days apart in Autumn 1977, the twin Voyager space probes have defied all the odds, survived countless near misses and almost 40 years later continue to beam revolutionary information across unimaginable distances. With less computing power than a ...

Could have been better toldReviewed bybettycjungVote: 5/10
Have a lot of high appreciation for documentaries, on a diverse range of subjects. The story behind the two voyager space-crafts was a remarkable achievement at the time and still holds much fascination now, even for someone who isn't an expert and has admittedly never considered science a famous subject of theirs.
'The Farthest' does its subject justice and as every bit a remarkable achievement. It is for me a highlight of 2017, and is accessible to anybody. One does not have to have deep knowledge of the story of the two voyagers to be completely fascinated by 'The Farthest'. It will illuminate those who do, nobody should be frustrated at not learning anything new, but has enough that will attract a wider audience who may have heard of it but not in great detail or have no knowledge and want to know more.
Visually, 'The Farthest' is stunning, beautifully photographed and those images of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are enough to take the breath away. Loved the wide variety of music choices and felt they added a lot.
Emer Reynolds' direction impresses hugely, she does play it safe with combining the NASA interviews with simulations of CGI, poetic shots of Earth and archive footage. Yet it doesn't feel too safe at all, with enough ambition that never comes over as over-ambitious.
Loved the way 'The Farthest' was written and assembled. The scientific elements are hugely intriguing and illuminating to anybody watching regardless of how expertly or limited their knowledge. Then there are some philosophical elements that are thought-provoking and even touching, without being self-indulgent.
Where 'The Farthest' particularly excels are how the enthusiasm (perceptive and honest and never glorifying) of the crew (namely the scientists and engineers) is conveyed, adding even further to how inspirational this mission and story are, and how ingeniously imaginative the technology (the technology itself and behind the scenes of how it came to be) is in making the mission possible. These are presented in a very humble manner.
In summation, remarkable. 10/10 Bethany Cox
I was privileged to see this amazing documentary as part of the NewZealand International Film Festival in Christchurch, NZ. If you areenraptured by astronomy, physics, drama, tragedy, philosophy ofscience, or just amazing stories, don't miss this documentary. And ifyou're not, still see it and be prepared to change your mind. Thedocumentary traces the whole story of the two Voyager missions to theouter planets of the solar system (and now beyond), from its earliestplanning stages through to lift off and then all the incredible andunexpected discoveries since. The audience clapped loudly at the end ofthe showing, and deservedly so. Three cheers for the romance ofscience!
