Our last Transit of Venus

Here’s a teaser for a documentary that’s in the works about the upcoming 2012 transit of Venus.

The project, led by Lightcurve Films, will highlight three groups of people: scientists who will observe the transit to study Venus and exoplanets; amateurs and students who will redo the experiment of determining the size of the solar system; and professional and/or amateur historians with the intention to observe the Transit with 18th and 19th century instruments.

The company is still seeking further production partners around the world as well as participants from the three categories outlined above.
