Destiny In Space

Synopsis: Travel up close astronauts as they repair the Hubble Space Telescope and soar above Venus and Mars whilst finding proof of new planets and the possibility of other life forming around distant stars.
40 min

in a space station.

There, we could learn how to maintain

a closed life-support system ...

for months or years at a time.

One more. Interesting.

Recycling is a must.

Future astronauts will be

accomplished gardeners.

They will tend

small farms in space ...

like this hydroponic garden

at the Kennedy Space Center ...

that uses recycled water

and oxygen to grow food.

The plants must be kept

free of contamination.

Halfway to another planet,

a crop failure would be a disaster.

A hundred and eighty reps left.

Keeping fit is another challenge.

With no body weight to support,

our muscles get weaker.

Bones become brittle.

The longer we stay,

the worse the problems become.

Hey, Bobby! Come on up here.

We're going by Canada.

People traveling to other planets ...

will spend years living

in a very confined space.

What kinds of emotional

stress will we face?

Will we get homesick, so far

from everything we know ...

isolated from family and friends

and the familiar comforts of home?

There she is, John.

Don't run into our home.

Our first journeys to another

world were to our nearby Moon.

Tranquility Base, Houston.

You are cleared for takeoff.

But those round trips

took barely a week.

Today, on the Mir station ...

Russian cosmonauts live

in space for many months.

From time to time, new crews arrive

from Earth in the Soyuz craft.

Now, after almost a year in orbit ...

the cosmonauts will

return home in Soyuz.

And even though they've spent up

to six hours exercising each day ...

when re-exposed to Earth's gravity,

they are temporarily unable to stand up.

Imagine arriving on an alien

planet in this condition.

But what if we could produce

an artificial gravity ...

as we travel to our destination?

In 1968, Stanley Kubrick's

classic film ...
