In celebration of NASA's fiftieth anniversary, Discovery Channel presents the dramatic story of the space agency's pioneering, awe-inspiring missions--from the early quest to break through the sound barrier to the historic first moon landing, and the breathtaking first shuttle launch to the spine-tingling unattached space walk by Bruce McCandless. Through original source materials and interviews, this spectacular program reviews the history of the space program, while supporting the study of the technology and engineering design process. Students will see how the physics of air and space flight and the intricate orbital and geological relationship between the Earth and moon are used to explore space.
