Damn. Can't watch it if your outside the the UK. And it looks like it's good too.
Don't worry, you didn't miss much.

It was overall a very negative portrayal of the Shuttle, since the main focus of the documentary was on the Shuttle's huge costs, and the Challenger & Columbia disasters. The HST and ISS (Shuttle's greatest achievements) got no more than 10 minutes of airtime in amongst all the negative coverage. :(

An interview with Yuri (I don't have the slightest idea what any of them are saying, but this is still pretty cool :thumbup:):

Very long (an hour and a half! :blink:) but it is a very good video:


A real time recreation of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering first orbit, shot entirely in space from on board the International Space Station. The film combines this new footage with Gagarin's original mission audio and a new musical score by composer Philip Sheppard. For more information visit http://www.firstorbit.org/.

Human Spaceflight: the Kennedy Legacy

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biSdeqwcGMk&feature=feedu[/ame]

In a speech to Congress 50 years ago today, on May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged the nation to send a man to the moon and return him safely to Earth by the end of that decade. This video includes historical footage of the launches of Yuri Gagarin and Alan Shepard, whose flights helped prompt Kennedy's speech, plus comments from Mercury astronauts John Glenn and Scott Carpenter, and Mercury Flight Director, Chris Kraft.

This is an old video but I don't think anyone's posted it here:


Great vision of what might have been. The only obvious flaw is that the crew appear to spend the whole 160 day trip out in the Apollo CM :blink:, adding in some Skylab footage would have been a pretty good stand in for a wet workshop hab module.
