Return To Flight: Return To Flight follows intensely human stories of triumph and failure as experienced by those who have undertaken to make things right. The two-year journey from the Columbia accident to the launch of the space shuttle Discovery in the summer of 2005 unfolds through the extraordinary day-to-day struggles of NASA scientists, engineers and astronauts from whom failure is not an option.
Inside the Space Shuttle: It takes the work of about 30,000 people, from start to finish, to get the Shuttle off the ground. From the ground crew that readies the runway for launch, to the workers that install the 30,000 one-of-a-kind silica tiles that serve as a heat shield, to the astronauts that fly the Shuttle, we ll discover what it takes to make one of the world s most amazing machines fly.
Countdown to Comeback: This special chronicles the efforts of NASA scientists and engineers as they grapple with the Columbia disaster and try to get the space program flying again.
Last flight of the space shuttle: Documentary following the preparations for the final launch in NASA s Space Shuttle program. From 1981 to 2011 the Shuttle program was used to send astronauts to space on shuttles which could then re-enter the Earth s atmosphere and land. Featuring interviews with engineers and astronauts involved in the program and behind the scenes footage, this documentary takes a look at the 18 months leading up to the final launch of a NASA space shuttle.
