From the earliest voyages that mapped the Earth to today’s launches into space, witness our unquenchable desire to extend the boundaries of knowledge. Based on the Pulitzer Prize® winning book The Discoverers by Dr. Daniel J. Boorstin, experience remarkable adventures around the world and in space.
The stories presented in the film span space and time, taking us around the world to participate in the act of discovery. Stand alongside Sir Isaac Newton in his lab in England: then travel to the present to observe Dr. Louis Herman working with his very cerebral dolphins in Hawaii. Solving mysteries while exploring new worlds, the six discoverers in the film are filled with the excitement of learning. It is this thrill of discovery, and their passion to know, which unites them and inspires their quest.
