Join Patrick Stewart and explore the unique relationships between scientific discoveries, advances in science theory, technology breakthroughs, and the concept of the universe. Highlighted are Newton, telescopes, and space probes. This program takes you from the world exploration of the 1500's to today where along the way you'll discover how devices were being created that would profoundly influence the course of history. For example, by 1903 the Wright brothers launched their first flying machine; in that same year, Tsiolkovsky conceived of a method to launch an artificial satellite into orbit. These technological advances led to space rocketry and solar system exploration. This emergence of technology allowed us to explore our celestial neighbors and helped unlock the secrets of the solar system. Finally by using modern advances in telescopes, we have been able to look out to the furthest expanses of the universe. Stand upon the shoulders of giants and see that our horizon is, indeed, endless.
