Abstract:

One day, space travel will be as routine as an airline flight. Crewed expeditions to other planets in search of extraterrestrial life will be science fact, not fiction, and travel to the Moon will be commonplace. Far-fetched? This program introduces viewers to some of the visionaries and risk-takers who have been driving developments in space exploration from Apollo 11 to the dawning of the 21st century. Captivating archival footage and computer graphics modeling the lives of future space travelers are included, as well as interviews with astronauts, astronomers, and others whose fascination continues to fuel the public's enthusiasm to reach for the stars.
