Editorial Reviews

As close as you can get to a shuttle mission without flying one!! On July 26, 2005, at 10:39 EDT, the Space Shuttle Discovery was launched, making it the first shuttle launch since the February 2003 Columbia disaster. Never before has a manned space launch and mission been recorded in such detail. Over 124 cameras covered the launch and for the first time , exterior cameras were used to record booster separation. This extraordinary mission is all here in one 3-DVD collectors box edition-plus bonus booklet. Total 4 hours and 27 minutes.

Special Features

None.

Format: DVD
The July 2005 mission of space shuttle Discovery was one of the most widely covered in NASA history. Only two years earlier, sister ship Columbia exploded during re-entry due to the loss of some insulating foam. Discovery, America's return to space following that tragedy, also lost insulation, this time during take-off, so a good deal of the crew's efforts were devoted to spacewalks for damage repairs. The scheduled delivery of supplies to the International Space Station was accomplished, as well. Discovery's successful return landing received much media coverage.

ST. CLAIR's NASA COLLECTION-Volume 1 has over 10 hours of vintage documentaries on Projects Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab.

If you know anyone interested in the space program, they will enjoy this DVD set.
It can be a little boring at times, but overall is a great set and wonderful value.

The set starts with the tragedy of the Columbia crash upon re-re and how that the next mission was dedicated to "getting back to space", and dedicated to that team that was lost.

It shows you the astronauts boarding the ship, one by one, and getting settle into their seats. Communication checks for every single member. My point here is, that this is detailed.
It travels with the launch in real time, to the disengage of the solid rocket boosters, the various speeds it reaches to hit orbit, etc.

This mission has a female commander, so it's also an inspiration for young women also.

The subsequent discs detail their various experiments, tools they use, space walks, etc.

Again, some of this material might be boring to a casual interest person, and the production is not flashy like any of the IMAX films, but this has a good place for someone who really wants to know the nitty gritty of what happens after the awesome spectacle of the launch.

This product is basically NASA's post mission briefing video of the July 2005 STS-114 mission of Space Shuttle Discovery, broken up over three DVDs with some additional material inserted in the disks dealing with the Apollo-Soyuz Mission/The Hubble Telescope/and the International Space Station. If you understand this, then you will be fine with it, but I would not expect great things from this video collection.

I loved In the Shadow of the Moon and When We Left Earth, and Apollo 13 (both the movie and the documentary), so it's not the subject matter that's the problem for me, but it's like they just threw all the footage (most of it grainy, low-res footage at that) they had on this thing without any editing whatsoever. Literally every moment of the countdown, launch, spacewalk, etc. They could have cut out so much where nothing is happening and just kept the more exciting stuff. About as exciting as watching ice melt. It does come in a nice stamped metal box though. At least mine did.
