The Farthest: Voyager in Space

The Farthest: Voyager in Space won the Emmy for outstanding science and technology documentary at yesterday’s 39th News & Documentary Emmys.

The Irish film tells the extraordinary story of one of humankind’s greatest achievements, Nasa’s Voyager space probes, and celebrates the magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could have hoped.

Reynolds says she is “really honoured for the whole team. Not all of them could come. It was a really small, dedicated, hard-working and invested team”, which “gave so much heart and soul”. It was a joy to work on the film, she says, “tackling science and space not just with facts but with wonder, awe and emotion, and pulling people along with the joy and invention of it”. It deals “primal questions of why we are here. The team took that to heart and came along with me on an amazing dream.” She describes The Farthest as “a good-news story about the wonder of science and the joy of discovery, when science is under attack”.
