Journey to Space
Science fiction is quickly becoming science fact, according to the MOST’s newest movie, Journey to Space. The film, which is narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, traces the history of U.S. space travel, including a tribute to the 355 astronauts who flew 135 Shuttle missions.
The film offers a strong overview of the Shuttle’s last major project: the launch and assembly of the International Space Station. The ISS is a joint collaboration of 15 nations and is operating 24/7, providing a true home and science lab in space.
But NASA isn’t sitting on its laurels. In fact, scientists are working to overcome the challenges faced by landing astronauts on Mars. This film outlines some of those challenges and discusses Orion, the spacecraft NASA plans to use to send humans on deep space missions.
