Synopsis by Mark Deming
Scientific fact merges with adventure and drama in this docudrama produced by the BBC. Voyage to the Planets and Beyond uses photographs from the far reaches of space taken by satellites during unmanned space missions as a basis for this speculative tale about a ten-year journey from Earth to Jupiter. As the crew make their way through the solar system, they encounter both the beauty and vastness of space as well as great danger while they encounter a wide variety of atmospheric and geological conditions along the way.
