  • Quotes

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) The most brilliant planet in our solar system is Venus, named for the goddess of love. It is closer to Earth than any other planet: twenty-eight million miles away. Until sometime in the last half of the twentieth century, it is still a planet shrouded in mystery, enveloped in a heavy blanket of clouds and steam. Because its surface temperature was believed to be several times that of Earth's, it was not thought possible for man to reach Venus and come back, until one day, somebody did it.

    • Jeff Barton: (Speaking to his doctor) My mind seems to wander. I have a horrible dream, I don't remember it, I just know it was horrible. What's happening to me, Mike?

    • Jeff Barton: (Speaking to his wife) I love you more than anything in this world... You're the only "world" I can discover over and over again, every time I come home to you, every time I'm close to you. You're the best of all possible worlds.

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) The eternal, never-ceasing search for knowledge often leads to dark and dangerous places. Sometimes it demands risks not only of those who are searching, but of others who love them. These, in their own special way, know that knowledge is never wasted, nor is love.
