Imagine diving below the ice on one of Jupiter's moons to look for signs of life, getting lost in a Venusian sulphuric acid storm or trying to drill on the disintegrating surface of a comet. Space Odyssey reveals for the first time the danger and spectacle of what it would be like for astronauts to land on and explore the other planets in the solar system.

The series is a ten-year journey flying to the outer reaches of the solar system. Along the way the team of astronauts rendezvous with an incoming comet, before visiting most of our neighbouring planets to carry out a series of fascinating but potentially lethal experiments.

Using feature film digital effects and the latest scientific findings, Space Odyssey enables the viewer to visit some of the most extraordinary sights under the Sun. This is the legendary Grand Tour brought to life, a beautiful and moving journey packed with peril and excitement. The programmes are a unique combination of drama and information, introducing astronomy to a whole new audience.
