An absolutely inspiring, emotional and fun look at genuine heroes on the forward lines of all of human endeavor.

Astrophysicists are the people who never stopped asking “why” at the very basic questions of existence. These are the magicians who can look at spots in the sky and explain, just a little bit better than the rest of us, some of the mysteries of Life, The Universe and Everything.

Easier said than done.

These are the people who will stop at no obstacles – and, man, there are lots of ’em – to make it happen.

This documentary is further proof that I want a time share at McMurdo Base.
