Summary
Around the world, a new generation of astronomers hunts for the most mysterious objects in the universe, including young stars and black holes. They have created a dazzling new set of super-telescopes that promise to rewrite the story of the heavens. This film follows the men and women who are pushing the limits of science and engineering in some of the most extreme environments on earth. But most strikingly of all, no-one really knows what they will find out there
