Welcome to astrophysics, Indiana Jones-style! Five-time Emmy winner Paul Devlin follows the story of his brother, mark Devlin PhD, as he leads a tenacious team of scientists trying to figure out how all the galaxies formed by launching a revolutionary new telescope under a NASA high-altitude balloon. They hope to look back in time to reveal a hidden Universe of never-before-seen star burst galaxies, providing clues to the Evolution of Everything. From catastrophic failure to transcendent triumph, Blast! exposes the surprising real life work of scientists
