Journey to Vostok

Cesta na Vostok

The documentary evokes the memory of a unique event in the history of the Czech science from the year 1963. Back then a young astrophysicist, Stanislav Fischer (1936), spent a year in the Soviet observatory Vostok in the Antarctic. By means of authentic journal entries and amateur film takes, which the young scientist had taken, the film returns to the early sixties and on his example shows the system of science in socialism.
