Once you’ve been in space, you appreciate how small and fragile the Earth is.
Over twenty years ago, rival nations put aside political and cultural differences to come together in a demonstration of international co-operation to create something unique – The International Space Station. Drawing together personal stories from men and women from around the world who have been a part of this extraordinary endeavour, the film provides a fascinating insight into human nature and our relationship with planet Earth and space – the great unknown. This breath-taking film celebrates the remarkable achievement of technology, international collaboration, scientific endeavour and human bravery that ISS represents, and provides an insight into the beauty and majesty of space, and the earth below. The Space Station remains a constant reminder of mankind’s frailties but also its ability to reach beyond the unimaginable, to life in space, but still within sight of home and the people we love. Features Astronauts; Scott Kelly, Tim Peake, Bill Shepherd, Frank Culberston, Peggy Whitson, Cady Coleman, Koichi Wakata, and Samantha Cristoforetti.
A totally arresting and inspiring look at space travel and the pioneers that have shown the way. Beam me up Scotty
