“We’re putting the largest telescope in space – a million miles away.” Netflix has revealed their fourth and final trailer in the Unknown series of documentaries streaming throughout July this summer. The final one examining mysteries and “unknowns” about our world is titled Unknown: Cosmic Time Machine, and it’s a compelling behind-the-scenes look at the construction and launch of NASA’s thrilling new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). This is the fourth & last film in a four-week docuseries event – following The Lost Pyramid, and Killer Robots, and Cave of Bones. With inside access to NASA’s ambitious mission to launch the telescope, which replaces the iconic Hubble Telescope, the film follows a team of engineers and scientists as they take the next giant leap in our quest to understand the universe. As a big time space nerd, I’ve already been following this telescope and its updates (@NASAWebb). It’s so cool! I’ll have to watch this.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Shai Gal’s doc Unknown: Cosmic Time Machine, from YouTube:
