This article discusses the Netflix documentary film A Trip to Infinity, including the premise, release date, production, and trailer.

What is infinity? What does it really mean? That’s the subject a new documentary from Netflix that explores ideas around the concept, sharing opinions from experts in the field. Netflix has a history of producing interesting documentaries and this one surely promises to be something unique.

A Trip to Infinity premise

According to Netflix, “Eminent mathematicians, particle physicists and cosmologists dive into infinity and its mind-bending implications for the universe.”

Our opinion of the premise

A Trip to Infinity promises to be an interesting documentary, though its main challenge will be whether it can simplify the complicated mathematical concepts it’s interested in down to a way that a general audience can understand them. Hopefully it delves into not just what an understanding of infinity means theoretically, but the real world applications of it. There are certainly opportunities for it to be a visually beautiful film, so it seems to be a promising watch.
