Perhaps the finest documentary I have ever seen. Even Ken Burns would agree!”

Wow! All those familiar names doing stuff I never heard of! Michelson, Langley, now Brashear, unintentionally changing modern science almost beyond recognition! Awesome!’

Very educational without being boring. Pleasantly surprised and enjoyed from start to finish.”
