For 50 years, American has led the way in space exploration. Yet the boundless void that begins just 62 miles above us has been visited by no more than 500 people. Now, a stunning high-definition series from The Discovery Channel opens up space as never before. In celebration of NASA’s 50th Anniversary, The Discovery Channel and NASA have produced an epic series, When We Left Earth, broadcasted in June 2008. The World Science Festival and the American Museum of Natural History hosted the premiere live screening of this awe-inspiring series followed by Three Generations in Space, a moderated conversation exploring the past, present and future of space exploration.
