Dawn of the Space Age begins with the launch of Sputnik and takes you on a visual tour of important Russian space history as well as the American Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle programmes. Along the way are glimpses of the Viking mission to Mars and the Voyager mission to the outer planets. The film also takes you to the International Space Station, the ‘X-prize’-winning private spaceship and talks about future Mars exploration. Who were the men and women who took part in these death-defying endeavours? Witness their drive and passion for exploring, and their perseverance, in Dawn of the Space Age.
