5.0 out of 5 stars Geat 4-Part Documentary on the Space Program! January 29, 2014
By Shawn
This is a four part documentary series created by the Smithsonian Channel about where the space program currently is and its plans for the future. All four episodes feature interviews from officials at the Smithsonian and NASA, as well as company executives, astronauts, engineers and scientists. The footage is of good quality and most of it is very recently produced (around late 2013), color and with great looking computer generated images! Some of the footage is Black and White but of good quality. The episodes are:

1. Into the Unknown: focuses on the unmanned interplanetary space probes. Coverage is of mostly recent expeditions to Mars with some archival footage (black and white) of earlier space probes and an explanation of rocket technology and how it was developed.

2. The Moon and Beyond: focuses on the manned expeditions to the Moon in the late 1960s, with coverage of the Space Launch System SLS and the testing of its engines (includes recent, good quality, computer generated images of the SLS rocket).

3. Open for Business: focuses on the attempts to commercialize space by SpaceX, XCOR and other private companies. Features interviews and computer generated images of the mini-space plane Dreamweaver and SKYLON. The Space Shuttle program is covered and the technology it created which is now being used to develop private spacecraft to take people into space.

4. Surviving the Void: focuses on the Skylab, ISS and different programs to enable humans to live in space for long periods of time. Trips to Mars are covered and interviews with different astronauts about their experiences are featured.
