When We Left Earth

UNBELIEVABLE!!! This is a must have for any proud American. The men & women involved in this mini-series are "TRUE" American heroes! Their guts & courage are unmatched. If you are not nervous & hanging on every don't have a pulse! Gary Sinise does a marvelous job of narrating this beautiful documentary.

Very Educational!

It tells the story on how our space program got started and when we started to dream about being in space. I really enjoyed it. And learned more about the men who gave us the spark and inspire all of us to broaden our horizens. The Shuttle missions brought back lots of memories and where I was when the Challenger disaster happened. If you love space or any of the sci-fi subjects, I hightly recommend this!


This is by far one of the greates collections of film from NASA that has ever been seen. Unbelivable stories and outstanding footage keep you excited and wanting more. Simply put these stories of heroics embody the American dream and what we stand for.
