About the Award-Winning Documentary
On a NASA research base in Silicon Valley, there's an organization that's changing the world ... Singularity University (SU).

Created by renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil and entrepreneur Peter Diamandis, with support from NASA, Google, and others, the university brings in some of the smartest students from around the world, and gives them a crash course in the most powerful exponential technologies on the planet.

The students are then given a challenge: create companies that will impact a billion people within ten years.

The film follows the students and their companies over five years, as they use the support of scientists, astronauts and billionaires in their attempt to make a dent in the universe. Welcome to the world of The University.

The film features such luminaries as Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Shimon Peres, Ashton Kutcher, Will.i.Am, Michio Kaku, and others.
