The Space Shuttle: This documentary looks behind the scenes of NASA's Space Shuttle program. People from virtually every aspect of Shuttle operations talk about their jobs: astronaut selection and training, vehicle and cargo prep, pad rollout, launch, mission control, and recovery. The different responsibilities of the various Space Centers are illustrated, and the unmanned- vs. manned-spacecraft controversy is discussed. Also included are personal recollections of the Challenger disaster.
