Synopsis

Ce documentaire donne la parole à des astronomes, ces découvreurs de comètes qui nous communiquent leur passion pour les étoiles, si proches et si loin de nous. En 1994, la comète Shoemaker-Levy heurte Jupiter de plein fouet. Pour la première fois, des astronomes assistent en direct à une collision cosmique dont la force d'impact aurait anéanti la Terre. Pour parer à cette menace, des scientifiques étudient la trajectoire des astéroïdes. Celle de Toutatis, par exemple, qui frôlera notre planète en 2004 pour passer tranquillement son chemin.
