In the more than 25 years since the moon landing, NASA has seen its once sterling reputation unravel in a series of tragedies, blunders and mismanagement that at times threatened to take America out of space entirely. Trace the long decline of NASA through revealing interviews with astronauts, politicians and former agency officials, including Dick Truly, who was fired by the Bush Administration. Relive the Challenger disaster, and see how it focused attention on enormous problems that had been hidden for years behind previous successes. Hear from insiders how the agency made engineering and scientific concerns secondary to political ones, and ended up paying the price at the worst possible moment. And trace the saga of the Hubble telescope, which was launched late, over-budget and inoperable!
