Horizon goes behind the scenes at Nasa to discover how it is preparing for its most ambitious and daring mission: to land men - and possibly women - on the surface of Mars. It's over 40 years since Neil Armstrong made the first human footprint on the moon. But getting to the red planet would involve a journey of at least three years. Horizon meets the scientists and engineers who are designing new rockets, new space suits and finding ways to help astronauts survive the perils of this long voyage. And it turns out that having the 'right stuff' for a mission to mars might not be quite what you expect.

Heading out with his film crew on a road trip across the USA, Brian fires lasers at the moon in Texas, goes mad in the desert in Arizona, encounters the bending of space and time at a maximum security military base, tries to detect ripples in our reality in the swamps of Louisiana and searches for hidden dimensions just outside Chicago.

Astronomers have long tried to understand our place as tiny specs in the vastness of the universe. But there is another expanse of the universe to explore, a bizarre realm in which we are giants, the wired world of the very small. This is a journey into the heart of matter, a journey down the biggest rabbit hole in history… a journey smaller than you can see, smaller than an atom, where nothing is what it seems… into a wonderland which seems far removed from reality… down to the very smallest structure of the universe. The journey to find the smallest thing may take us into another universe altogether. And the bottom of the rabbit hole, we may find that our universe is just one of many.
