Charley Boorman and Ewan McGreggor have announced their new adventure, which will be made into a documentary to be shown on BBC2 and National Geographic in the near future.
This time they will mount their 'Off-Earth' rocket bikes and start to make their way out of the solar system towards Proxima Centari - the next nearest star to us after the sun. On the way, they are sure to find many interesting things as they travel across the huge empty gulf of 4.2 light years of interstellar space until they arrive at the red dwarf.
'I've always wanted to know if there were life harboring planets orbiting the next nearest star after the sun,' Charley told us. 'And since no one at NASA seems to be man enough to do it, we'll go there ourselves.'
'This will be a walk in the park,' Ewan then giggled. 'After all, I'm used to being a Jedi Knight fighting the Sith across a galaxy far, far away. So a mere interstellar hop from one star system to another should be a piece of cake.'
