Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas
The mission to protect and defend the world’s oceans has become far more complex and challenging in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success. One of the greatest engineering feats in history, the modern U.S. nuclear carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet. With RIMPAC, the world’s largest and most comprehensive international maritime training exercise providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the carrier alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there.
Journey to Space
NASA’s next era will be its greatest yet. Journey to Space showcases the exciting plans that NASA and the space community are currently working on and the challenges they must overcome to carry out audacious missions such as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids. The film features interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson, commander of the final Space Shuttle mission, and Serena Aunon, a new astronaut chosen for future flights and narration by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart. Journey to Space helps put into historical context, the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle program and its space pioneers.
