Four of the world’s most distinguished astronomers celebrate 50 years of work and friendship with a road trip through the southwestern United States, discussing and exploring the mysteries of the universe. Recapturing youthful adventures and recounting each other’s influences on the most exciting period in astronomy’s history, they share roots from a time following Russia’s launch of Sputnik, when the U.S. accelerated their space program. The four British astronomers spent a formative year together in California in the early 1960s. Star Men looks at how the work of these men has shaped our understanding of the universe and our humble place in it. Tracing the major discoveries in astronomy in the 20th century through these four men, director Alison Rose also explores friendship and mortality-and the fleetingness of our lives played out under the stars.
