Journey to Space
Man has an inherent need to explore what lies beyond the next horizon. This drive combined with emerging technologies from sailing ships, air travel, and rockets has opened up new vistas for us to contemplate. Where will man go in the future following the Space Shuttle Program? What might these future missions look like, and what are problems of long-term space flight that must be solved as we learn how to journey beyond our planet?
Journey into Space examines our space program, highlighting the Space Shuttle Program, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the future vehicles that will propel man beyond Earth, where new techniques will be utilized to explore asteroids and the surface of Mars. There will be new hazards and considerations that will confront man as a new generation begins to journey into space.
