Description

Since NASA was established in 1958, it has landed rovers on distant planets and launched telescopes deep into space--all so that we can look back to the beginning of time.

Through stunning images provided by NASA and fascinating profiles and sidebars of lesser known contributors to the NASA program, young space fans will learn how NASA started, how it faced challenges along the way, how much it has achieved, and how it will continue to move forward in the future.

NASA's boundless curiosity and urge to explore lies at the heart of the human adventure. NASA rises to the urgent challenges we face, using its massive reach and expertise to find answers to vital questions like: How can we learn to live in a more extreme natural environment?

Inspired by Rory Kennedy's documentary of the same name (airing 10/2018), Above and Beyond aims to leave audiences hopeful and inspired about the future of our planet--and convinced that NASA is essential to our continued survival as we mark its important anniversaries and dream of new discoveries to come.
