NASA: A Journey Through Space Full Episode Guide

  • NASA Launches Endeavour and Crashes the Moon

  • NASA's Return to the Moon.

  • NASA launches shuttle Atlantis on the 135th and final mission of the Space Shuttle Program. Under the command of astronaut Chris Ferguson on a 12-day mission to the International Space Station.

  • The space shuttle Endeavour, the youngest orbiter in NASA's fleet, soares into the sky to begin the final mission of its 19-year career. Commanded by Mark Kelly.

  • Space Shuttle Discovery, the most traveled ship in the shuttle fleet and the shuttle used for the most daring missions, is scheduled to launch for the last time ever.

  • With only three launches left before NASA retires the shuttle fleet, Atlantis is set to blast-off from Cape Canaveral.

  • In its next-to-final flight, Space Shuttle Discovery, launches for the International Space Station, carrying a crew of four men and three women.

  • The crew of Endeavour will deliver the 'Tranquility' module to the International Space Station. This will mark the 130th shuttle mission since the program started in 1981.

  • Space shuttle Discovery will carry the Leonardo supply module to the International Space Station which includes the COLBERT treadmill, an exercise device named after comedian Stephen Colbert.

  • During the two-week mission -- STS 119 -- astronauts will deliver the final power module to the International Space Station, boosting the station to full power.

  • Commander Mark Polansky leads his crew on a mission to the International Space Station.

  • A 11-day mission, Atlantis' crew will visit the Hubble space telescope for the final time, upgrading one of the most important satellites ever launched.

  • The launch of NASA's Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope. With GLAST, astronomers will be able to study black holes and gain valuable information about the birth and early evolution of the universe.

  • It will be the second of three flights that will launch components to complete Kibo laboratory. Discovery's 14-day flight carries the heaviest payload to the station and will include three spacewalks.

  • NASA mission STS-123 concludes after a 16-day journey. Endeavour is expected to land at Kennedy Space Center.

  • The shuttle and its international crew returned to the spaceport having accomplished all the missions. Atlantis covered some 5.3 million miles lasting 12 days, 18 hours, 21 minutes and 50 seconds.

  • STS-122 was a mission to the International Space Station (ISS), flown by the Space Shuttle Atlantis. STS-122 marked the 24th shuttle mission to the ISS, and the 121st space shuttle flight overall.

  • After 15 days and 238 orbits of the Earth, Discovery and crew were welcomed back to Florida where they touched down on Runway 33 at Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility.

  • Space shuttle Discovery lifts off on a missione to deliver the Harmony module to the International Space Station.

  • Discovery delivered the Harmony module and reconfigured a portion of the station in preparation for future assembly missions.

  • Dawn is a space probe with the mission of studying two of the three known protoplanets of the asteroid belt, Vesta and Ceres.

  • After 201 orbits in more than 12 days, Endeavour glided to a picture-perfect landing on Runway 15 at Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility.

  • The Phoenix Mars Lander will launch aboard a Delta II rocket, bound for the Red Planet. The robot will investigate whether water on Mars could, or did, sustain life.

  • Space Shuttle Atlantis returns to earth after a 12 day mission to the International Space Station. Flight Engineer Suni Williams is on board.

  • Atlantis will deliver a second starboard truss segment and a third set of solar arrays and batteries during the Space Shuttle Program's 21st mission to the International Space Station.

  • STS-93 primary payload was the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, designed to observe X-rays from high energy regions of the universe. The mission was commanded for the first time by a woman, Eileen Collins.

  • Endeavour launches on a mission to complete the most extensive topographic survey of the Earth that will enable scientists to produce detailed three-dimensional models of the planet's surface.

  • STS-116 will be the twentieth U.S. mission to the International Space Station. The flight will deliver and attach the third port truss segment to the station -- the Integrated Truss Structure P5.

  • NASA's recent decision to fix the Hubble Telescope and why they think it's worth the expense.

  • Atlantis landed on the first opportunity and traveled 4,901,268 statute miles. This mission resumed assembly of the International Space Station after a hiatus of four years and the Astronauts performed three spacewalks.

  • Nasa launched 5 satellites into space on a single rocket.

  • The Atlas 5 rocket will carry six satellites during a complex launch of the Air Force's Space Test Program-1 mission.

  • Extended Coverage (3 hours plus) of six astronauts launched into Space aboard the 27th flight of Shuttle Atlantis. For the first time since 2002, assembly of the International Space Station will resume on the STS-115 mission.

  • Tag along as the Sapce Shuttle Discover is moved to the launch platform and the astronauts get strapped into position prior to the spectacular lift off.

  • Observe the launch of the most advanced weather satellite. GOES (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites) will provide a constant vigil for the atmospheric "triggers" for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes, flash floods and more.

  • Experience NASA's launch of the latest GOES weather satellite and learn precisely what this type of satellite does while in orbit, and how that can potentially affect this country's response to coming weather events, like Hurricanes.

  • On July 4, 2006, with a rocket's red glare, Space Shuttle Discovery lifted off in a spectacular display of sound & light befitting of Independence Day. As it raced into the bright blue sky, cheers erupted along the beaches of Florida's Space Coast.

  • Space Shuttle Discovery made a picture-perfect touchdown. Commander Steven Lindsey and Pilot Mark Kelly guided the ship as it made its 17,000 mph descent from space. The landing completes a 13-day mission to the International Space Station.

  • This is your front row seat to the Space Shuttle Columbia launch in America's new journey to the moon, Mars and beyond.

  • Ride along with NASA Voyager (8/20/1977 launch) and experience the first portraits of the edge of the solar system including intimate images of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune.

  • NASA's space shuttle program allows for easier access to orbit with reusable craft, paving the way for more advanced satellites and the first major space stations.

  • Having essentially won the Space Race with the Soviet Union, and in the midst of economic turmoil, NASA's priorities are restructured. Apollo 17 marks the end of manned missions to the moon, and the transition towards more Earth-focused missions.

  • John F. Kennedy laid out the most ambitious Space Race goal in 1961 - for NASA to send the first humans to the surface of the moon and return them safely

  • As part of the Cold War arms race, the United States found itself engaged in the Space Race, pushing for superiority through technology

  • Humans have always been reaching for the stars, but despite the path to the moon laid out by Jules Verne, they first needed to master flight.
