The Voyagers2010

  • 4.1
In the summer of 1977, NASA sent Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 on an epic journey into interstellar space. Together and alone, they will travel until the end of the universe. Each spacecraft carries a golden record album, a massive compilation of images and sounds embodying the best of Planet Earth. According to Carl Sagan, “[t]he spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this bottle into the cosmic ocean says something very hopeful about life on this planet.” While working on the golden record, Sagan met and fell madly in love with his future wife Annie Druyan. The record became their love letter to humankind and to each other. In the summer of 2010, I began my own hopeful voyage into the unknown. This film is a love letter to my fellow traveler.

Wonderful melody of science and the vulnerability of humanity, of love. Learned a lot, too.

Wow, what an amazing short. Absolutely loved it. Wish I could keep it all the time in my back pocket.

Incredible. This has become one of my favorite shorts ever.

what a well done film! Very beautiful footage I had never seen before.

Beautifully conceived, but I found the narrator's reflections on her personal relationship quite distracting. Carl Sagan's contributions to popular science are so profound, and the Challenger disaster is so profoundly tragic. I resented being pulled away from these portions of the documentary to wade through something that resembled marriage counselling.

amazing

Beautiful love story. Fascinating footage I'd never seen.

In complete awe

OK, Carl you forgot to put genitals on the women for your gold record and why doesn't she get to wave too. Oh well... enough of that. The 16 minutes that this film runs is otherwise just plain fabulous.
