Brendan Dahill, General Manager for EQ Media said: “We are delighted to be partnering with ABC Commercial. Science and adventure are part of the DNA of EQ Media and this series will tell you everything you have ever wanted to know about space but were afraid to ask”.

EQ Media Group series "The Time Traveller’s Guide to the Galaxy" was developed in house by David Alrich, Brendan Dahill and Series Producer Justin Corbett.  The series was motivated by NASA’s challenge to send a manned expedition to Mars by 2030, Elon Musk’s impressive work creating re-usable rockets and his determination to take humanity into a space-based future, the plans of Breakthrough Starshot to send a probe to other solar systems, and the studies being done at a number of international Universities to find exoplanets (Planets outside our solar system) in the so-called Goldilocks Zone - the orbital area around a sun that can support life.
