Sure now we get live HD from the ISS
like it's nothing, but much of the last half century of space exploration has never been seen by most in anything other than grainy analog broadcasts. That'll change in June once When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions
debuts on Discovery Channel, drawing from more than 150 hours of NASA footage, called a cross between The Right Stuff
and EHD fave Planet Earth
. The Orlando Sentinel
mentions the new doc is part of a push to ensure funding to speed further space explorations, as long as they provide more great HD opportunities we're all for it. Look for the Blu-ray boxed set July 24 for $79.95.
