In 1543, a diagram drawn by a Polish priest revealed to the world a new idea, which forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it; the concept of a sun-centric universe. A plaque was put aboard the unmanned Pioneer space probe in 1972 to communicate fundamental facts about Earth and its inhabitants to life on other planets. How did a single diagram fit everything in?

Looking at these past projects and into the future, BBC's Horizon explores science's obsession with the idea of gravity control. Are flying cars and journeys to the stars still the stuff of dreams?
