Final: 1x06 -- Home In Space (Jun/22/2008) [Special Airtime: 10:00 pm]

The development of the Hubble Space Telescope, the most complex instrument ever built was expected to transform our understanding of the Universe. But once it was in space NASA discovered a major problem, the deflective mirror was misaligned and would need to be repaired. It is NASA’s greatest and highest profile mission since the Apollo era. With a renewed confidence NASA begins construction of the International Space Station. More astronauts are in space simultaneously than ever before. And despite the tragedy of Columbia, NASA’s astronauts are pioneering the way back to the moon, Mars and beyond.
