I didn't know there was a flying telescope in the stratosphere looking for dead stars. Very interesting documentary ! Thanks for sharing

Amazing! Beautiful photography, sound and music, and also great science. The last couple of minutes made me think that I chose a wrong career. Wish it wasn't already too late to become a professional astronomer!

This was really good. Heads and tails above most other astronomy-oriented documentary TV shows I've seen. I really enjoyed the footage of the SOFIA airborne observatory in action. Thanks for posting the link!

Thanks for posting. I really enjoyed the show and have bookmarked other BBC-Horizon videos to watch. Really nice content and production quality.
