A revolutionary telescope dangling at the bottom of a balloon may unlock the secrets of the universe
BLAST! is a spectacular and suspenseful story of space exploration. Five-time Emmy® winner Paul Devlin (SlamNation, Power Trip) follows his brother Mark Devlin, Ph.D., to five continents, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, to launch a revolutionary new telescope on a NASA high-altitude balloon. They hope to look back in time to reveal a hidden universe of never-before-seen starburst galaxies. From catastrophic failure to transcendent triumph, their adventure exposes the surprising real life of scientists.
