BBC – Space Truckers (2017)

BBC Space Truckers

Hard rocking, Ardglass trucker Ryan Milligan is also an extraterrestrial, Nasa scientist, and last summer he landed his dream gig – trucking precious parts of the Lofar Radio Telescope from the Netherlands to Birr in Co Offaly. The supercomputer allows European and Nasa researchers access to cutting-edge astrophysics to observe solar storms and pulsars originally discovered by Lurgan’s Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell. Ryan has to steer his way through logistics, customs, ferry timetables and Peter’s playlist to avoid disappointing the brainiacs waiting for him in Ireland.
