    Who Needs A Captain?, Season 6 | Episode 4

    The secret to a successful Bluefin tuna boat is having great mates. Prime example, Pinwheel. For the third consecutive week of tuna fishing season, Pinwheel leads the fleet with its first returning mates from a previous season. Will they be able to keep their streak going or will the dependable mates on Hot Tuna, greenhorn on Wicked Pissah, or family on Hard Merchandise blow them out of the water? Or maybe the two mates on FV-Tuna.Com, who fish without their captain onboard will make their mark on the fleet. One thing is for sure, the fleet may never be the same when one boat makes history with the biggest Bluefin tuna catch ever in the fleet.

    Iss 24/7 On A Space Station, 1

    The International Space Station (ISS) is without doubt the most ambitious orbital project ever built. This giant assemblage covering some 9,700m2 has allowed men and women to prepare for long periods of weightlessness, as a precursor to possible trips to Mars. It has also allowed people from around the world to live and work together, with no fewer than 16 nations having participated in the construction of this steel behemoth weighing 400 tonnes. But how did the engineers and astronauts go about assembling this station in space? How does it operate? What energy source does it use. How do the crew get there? And how do they get home again? What is it like to eat, sleep and even breathe on board? This film takes us inside the International Space Station.

    Space Shuttle: Triumph And Tragedy

    +

    Part 1, Season 1 | Episode 1

    Documentary recounting the extraordinary story of the Space Shuttles, the world's first reusable spacecraft. Conceived 50 years ago, it was hoped the Shuttle's would be a new, safe and cost effective way of getting into space. Flying 17500 miles an hour, 13 times faster than Concorde and with heatproof skin that could withstand temperatures twice as hot as larva, the Shuttles pushed technology to new highs. The man charged with making the maiden space flight in 1981, Bob Crippen reveals how the first mission nearly ended in disaster when part of the Shuttle's heatshield failed. But the flight was a success and the Shuttle fleet got to work. With room for 8 astronauts the Shuttles would carry more equipment and more people into space than any other spaceship. And the Shuttles allowed NASA to open its doors to women for the first time. As Rhea Seddon, the first female Shuttle Astronaut recounts NASA wasn't prepared for the new arrivals and had to invent special space nappies so they could use the spacesuits. But away from the cameras there was another side to the Shuttles. Historian Roland White reveals from the outset the Shuttles had been designed to carry out secret spy missions for the US military. In 1983 President Regan became determined to use them to build his famous Star Wars missile defence shield in space and win the Cold War. But costing up to $15bn a launch, the Shuttles were proving to be far harder to maintain and more expensive than predicted. As Wayne Hale, the man in charge of the Shuttle program explains in 1986, NASA was so desperate to keep the public onside, it came up with a plan to send an ordinary citizen, teacher Christa McAuliffe into space and beam a lesson live into US classrooms. But, when NASA ignored warnings from its own engineers and when Shuttle Challenger exploded, killing Christa and rest of the crew, the shuttle program faced being shut down.

    Space Shuttle: Triumph And Tragedy

    +

    Part 2, Season 1 | Episode 2

    In 1986 the destruction of the Shuttle Challenger was broadcast live on TV. As America considered grounding its fleet for good, they were stunned to discover they were not the only country with a Shuttle. Convinced the US Shuttles must be a weapon, the Soviets had stolen the plans from NASA and built their own - they called it: the Buran, meaning Blizzard. And like the Americans, the Soviets quickly realised the costs of reusable spacecraft were prohibitively expensive and after flying one only once, the Russian Shuttles were left to rot. NASA was banking on proving the Shuttles worth by launching the biggest and most expensive space telescope ever built. But when a mistake making the telescopes optics left NASA with nothing but burred images, the Shuttle program's future was left hanging by a thread. With breath-taking archive from the time, this film recounts the epic Shuttle mission sent to repair the telescope and salvage NASA's reputation. The Hubble telescope would transform our understanding of the Universe but, with costs spiralling, President Clinton threatened to shut it down. In a twist of fate, the Shuttles were saved by the collapse of the Soviet Union. US intelligence feared former Soviet rocket scientist would defect to rogue states if the Russian space program ended so persuaded Clinton to use the Shuttle fleet to keep the Russian space station Mir going. Shuttle Commander and former Navy fighter tells of the moment the two spaceships connected and he shook hands with Russian Commander on Mir, officially bringing the Cold War to an end. But, as Britain's only Shuttle Astronaut Michael Foale reveals, working with the Russians was not easy. As the dramatic archive of his 4 month stay on MIR shows, Michael nearly died when the Russian space station was struck by a supply module. But out of this unique co-operation would come the biggest space project ever attempted: the International Space Station. Built by 16 nations, the huge $150bn space station could only be assembled by the Shuttles. In 2003, the loss of a second Shuttle, the Columbia would put the whole project in jeopardy. With gripping archive filmed inside mission control as the disaster unfolded, the program examines the mistakes NASA made that claimed the lives of another seven astronauts. But the disaster did not spell the end of the Shuttle programme. And in an emotional end to series Barbara Morgan recounts how 21 years after she'd been selected as the backup for teacher Christa McAuliffe who died in the Challenger, she became a professional astronaut and helped complete the International Space Station. Still in operation today, it remains the Shuttle's greatest achievement.

    Deep Space Antenna, Season 2 | Episode 18

    NASA's DSS-14 Mars antenna has been supporting space science since going online in1966. But recently, the massive dish has been failing and needs to be shut down for major repairs. After driving the antenna 24/7 for decades, its parts are starting to show some serious wear and tear. To get it back up running smoothly again, we're getting under the hood of the nearly 7 million pound giant to swap out a critical part of the enormous hydrostatic bearing allowing it to resume its acute tracking capabilities.
