THE FARTHEST -- VOYAGER IN SPACE
August 23, 2017  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Monday’s eclipse was an amazing thing to witness, even if you had a view of something less than totality. And now, only a few days later, we get another thrill from space. This one, though, is man-made: the Voyager unmanned space probes were launched 40 years ago, and Voyager 1 has become the first man-made object to reach interstellar space, beyond the reach of our solar system, sending back data and photos for much of its 11-miles-per-second journey. Tonight, a four-decades anniversary recap, and reflection, on one of mankind’s greatest and most inspiring technical achievements. For the full story, see Alex Strachan’s TV That Matters.
