The Discoverers

bigImage From the earliest voyages that mapped the Earth to today's launches into space, THE DISCOVERERS reverberates with the passion to explore our universe. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Dr. Daniel J. Boorstin, THE DISCOVERERS examines our desire to expand the boundaries of knowledge. The stories presented in this film span space and time, taking us around the world to participate in the act of discovery. Stand alongside Sir Isaac Newton in his British lab; then travel to the present to observe Dr. Louis Herman working with his very cerebral dolphins in Hawaii.
