We Choose Space

January 4, 2014, 4:00 p.m.

Space beckons. On a clear, dark night, we see the moon, planets, and the deep universe, fascinating but unreachable. The International Space Station and other satellites move overhead, urging us outward. Narrated by astronauts and the late Walter Cronkite, this program from the Houston Museum of Natural Science takes you from the moon race into the space station itself and on to one possible future in space.
