Mission Discovery (2005)

  
Format:  Mission Discovery DVD 
 
 
After the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas in 2003, NASA waited two years before launching another spacecraft. But on July 26, 2005, the first "return to flight" mission was performed by the Discovery--and recorded by over 124 cameras. With stunning, footage of the launch, this fascinating documentary captures the wonder of this spectacular--and risky--trip in full detail. 183 min. on three discs. Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; photo gallery; bonus shorts "Mission of Apollo-Soyuz," "Hubble Heritage Premiere," and "ISS: Realizing the Dream"; more.
