Episode 6 - Space Station
This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have enabled the world’s biggest space station – the International Space Station – to be built. The International Space Station orbits 200 miles above our heads, hurtling around the Earth at seventeen and a half thousand miles an hour. It is one of the greatest engineering feats of all time. Its crew performs vital experiments that will one day allow humans to live permanently in space. A test bed for future missions deeper into space, the space station could enable future generations to journey throughout the Solar System or even live on Mars. This film explores how the space station was made possible through a series of five engineering breakthroughs. The film features five landmark space stations that have contributed innovations to allow engineers to build bigger and explore the wonders of space travel. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these structures and the inventions that have pushed the boundaries of science. Five ingenious leaps forward that enabled space stations to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World’
