Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets

Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets is a two-part BBC docudrama revealing the dangers and spectacles of exploring other planets in the solar system. Five astronauts pilot the nuclear thermal rocket powered Pegasus spacecraft on a tour of the solar system. Their mission is a collaboration of international space agencies and takes the crew to Venus, Mars, a close flyby of the Sun, Jupiter's moon Io and Europa, Saturn, Pluto, and the fictional Comet Yano-Moore. Most of the planetary destinations the crew reaches are followed by a manned landing there.
