In 1977 the Voyager spacecraft is launched on its journey of discovery. It carries with it a time capsule containing a Golden Record of sounds and music from earth – a brief history of mankind.
Just minutes after this momentous launch, a baby girl is born on earth. Carrie.
Four decades later, Voyager is 12 billion miles from home – further than anything manmade has ever travelled. Carrie is a teacher and soon to be married.
As Voyager leaves our solar system a change is triggered in Carrie and a strong desire to leave Earth begins to grow. She begins to contemplate leaving behind everything she has ever known to become a pioneer on a one way mission to Mars.
