The Future of Flight [electronic resource]

Technological advances are constantly leading to bigger, lighter, and faster passenger planes, but what about the future? This video clip looks at hypersonic vehicles, touted as the next big thing in aviation. These crafts fly at more than five times the speed of sound, but this clip asks how this technological progress can be implemented in a world where fuel is becoming more and more expensive and carbon emissions are becoming a bigger and bigger problem. One suggestion: build passenger craft that use far less fossil fuels, or, even better, build planes that use none at all.

Apollo-Soyuz - USA and Soviet Space Mission

Mid July 1975, an American Apollo spacecraft and a Soviet Soyuz spacecraft, prepare to join an Earth orbit, 140 miles above the Atlantic near Portugal. A time during which differences in language, technology, and political creed were set aside. This was the mission that opened the door for international manned spaceflight. A mission that would set the course for joint flights of the future.

Hubble Telescope - Looking for Creation

NASAs Hubble space telescope is a modern example of turning defeat into victory. When Hubble was launched, it was touted as the most advanced telescope of its kind, promising to bring the deepest reaches of the galaxy into sharp focus. But a problem in the telescope's primary mirror called spherical aberration forced astronomers to rethink their science goals.

Apollo 15 - in the Mountains of the Moon

Five miles above the moon, Dave Scott and Jim Irwin looked out the window of their lunar module down toward Al Worden in the command module, which had completed its separation maneuver. Beneath them the 15, 000 foot steep of the lunar Apennine mountain. Soon they would fly low over those steeps on their way to a landing in a little valley in the mountains of the Moon.

Global Estrangement

About 100 years after man stepped on the moon, it's likely that we are in a position to colonize Mars. We are heading towards the creation of a planetary civilization in what will be the greatest transition in the history of humankind. A brave new world lies before us. And a high-speed race to reverse the poisoning of the planet. We used fossil fuels to take the big leap of the Industrial Revolution and during the 20th and 21st centuries. We filled the atmosphere with carbon dioxide, in an explosive way. Even if today we completely stopped sending carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the amount that has already been released is such that it is enough to cause global warming for decades to come, like a lung that is subject to the action of tobacco for years. How strange the climate wit [...]
