[edit] Information

Narrated by award-winning actor Gary Sinise, WHEN WE LEFT EARTH is the incredible story of humankind's greatest adventure, as it happened, told by the people who were there. From the early quest of the Mercury program to put a man in space, to the historic moon landings, through the Soyuz link-up and the first un-tethered space walk by Bruce McCandless, this is how the space age came of age. The vivid HD series features vintage rushes and all the key onboards filmed by the astronauts themselves. The sequences are captured by cameras onboard the spaceships, enabling the series to tell the stories in a depth never seen before.

[edit] Ordinary Supermen

NASA chooses the seven test pilots who will risk their lives to become the first astronauts. Although no capsule has ever made a successful launch into orbit, there is no other known way of reaching space. The Mercury astronauts and engineers need to figure out how to launch a man into space on top of a converted intercontinental ballistic missile.

[edit] Friends and Rivals

A new generation of astronauts have arrived for the Gemini Project...their mission, to test all the required procedures necessary to send the men to the moon and get them back to earth safely. Each Gemini mission launches two men into space, leading to some of NASA's greatest moments -- Ed White's spacewalk, the first orbital rendezvous of Gemini 6 and 7.

[edit] Landing the Eagle

As the men of NASA are closing in on claiming the ultimate prize, a walk on the moon, a fire breaks out in the Apollo 1 pressurized capsule, killing astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. But the tragedy was turned to triumph when the Saturn V rocket safely exited the atmosphere, headed for the moon....a first. Two missions later and NASA is ready to land men on the moon in the ultimate test of America's space faring vision.

[edit] The Explorers

Now that NASA has successfully made the orbiting trip to the moon and back, it's time for the next step and explore the moon. But Apollo 13 would prove a more serious challenge when it is damaged while in space and a plan must be made to help the astronauts return home safely. Undaunted, more expeditions would come, including bringing the land rover to the moon for further exploration. Apollo 17 is the longest moon mission and the last time man would set foot on the moon for generations. In a new phase of the space program, NASA converts an unused Saturn V rocket into Skylab, a reusable American space station. but it arrives damaged and calls for a walk in space for the astronauts to make repairs.

[edit] The Shuttle

The development of a new, larger spacecraft with a cargo bay brings an end for the older capsule vehicles. The new craft would revolutionize space travel, but someone would need to drive it. This would require a true test pilot, and John Young, the man who sat alongside Gus Grissom on the first Gemini flight was the chosen man. NASA's manned programs are again leading the way, but space travel remains as dangerous as ever and tragedy again strikes when the space shuttle Challenger explodes, killing all aboard.

[edit] Home in Space

The development of the Hubble Space Telescope, the most complex instrument ever built was expected to transform our understanding of the Universe. But once it was in space NASA discovered a major problem, the deflective mirror was misaligned and would need to be repaired. It is NASA’s greatest and highest profile mission since the Apollo era. With a renewed confidence NASA begins construction of the International Space Station. More astronauts are in space simultaneously than ever before. And despite the tragedy of Columbia, NASA’s astronauts are pioneering the way back to the moon, Mars and beyond.
