Astronaut

The exploration of space is the greatest journey humanity has ever undertaken.  What does it take to be part of the journey?  What does it take to be... an astronaut?  Narrated by Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels), Astronaut is the next best thing to being there. Feel the excitement of a space launch, experience astronaut training, and discover the dangers and opportunities of space exploration. This 35-minute show is designed for general audiences, and includes a live segment on the current night sky.
