THE EXPLORATION OF DEEP SPACE

THE CHALLENGER DISASTER
The history of exploring the stars and planets over our heads is as ancient as the written word, yet it wasn't until rocket-propelled technology existed that we could literally reach out and touch them. This is the story of that quest, from its humble beginnings all the way through to space stations, and high powered telescopes that can see back in time. It's a journey that is as thrilling as it is fascinating, and this program does a remarkable job of capturing all the excitement and science behind one of humankind's greatest accomplishments.
