- Program Description
For 30 years, scientists have been on the hunt for the source of the most powerful and mysterious explosions in the universe. Defying their expectations, they have discovered that these powerful gamma ray bursts are located at the edges of the known universe. They are exploding so far back in time, when the cosmos had barely begun, that they conceal clues to the birth of the very first stars and black holes. This story also becomes an intensely personal saga of scientific competition, frustration and breakthrough.
