A series that explores the challenges and opportunities of modern space exploration. NASA is sizing up a new but familiar challenge: how to transport humans into deep space. After 30 years spent circling the Earth, NASA is building spacecraft to take astronauts beyond the moon to an asteroid and eventually Mars. From rocket testers in Mississippi, to capsule builders in Florida, it's the story of the spacecraft and the technicians aiming to follow in the footsteps of their Apollo ancestors.

Absolutely amazing, my high expectations were exceeded. I'll probably watch this again sometime, or even buy it.

Mostly an outstanding collection of documentaries on space. The one weak episode, if you want to think of it that way, deals with the notion of private space travel and initiatives in space- something that comes across, particularly in the case of Richard Branson- as nothing more than pure ego and greed. There's plenty of interest here, including looks at early NASA failures before successes, with commentary from astronauts in the lunar missions and the shuttle missions. The episode that comes across as the best of the lot follows the shuttle Discovery as she makes her way to her final resting place in the Smithsonian.
