Beginning with the Apollo 11 mission and covering 30 years of space research and development, National Geographic: Destination Space examines the past, present, and future explorations of the final frontier. An uplifting documentary, it recounts the wild history of space travel while providing computer-generated projections of future space missions. Archival footage and interviews play a pivotal role in painting a comprehensive historical picture of the space industry: Various astronauts relate a slew of space stories, which range from silly to frightening to triumphant, and tragedies such as the Challenger disaster are recalled in horrific detail. The documentary emphasizes that, along with the few publicized failures, there have been a myriad of successes in space exploration, and scientists enthusiastically stress the bright prospects for important future expeditions. ~ John Schietinger, Rovi
