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!
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 word......you don't have a pulse! Gary Sinise does a marvelous job of narrating this beautiful documentary.
I could not agree more with what has been said so far about this program. Riveting, powerful, and never boring, this program really hits the mark...
