Space Exploration Seen as Never Before.

Narrated by award-winning actor Gary Sinise, WHEN WE LEFT EARTH is the incredible story of humankind's greatest adventure, as it happened, told by the people who were there. From the early quest of the Mercury program to put a man in space, to the historic moon landings, through the Soyuz link-up and the first un-tethered space walk by Bruce McCandless, this is how the space age came of age. The vivid HD series features vintage rushes and all the key onboards filmed by the astronauts themselves. The sequences are captured by cameras onboard the spaceships, enabling the series to tell the stories in a depth never seen before.


Ep.1: ORDINARY SUPERMAN
NASA selects seven men to become the first astronauts. They're all test pilots, prepared to risk their lives. No one has ever survived a vertical launch on top of a rocket, but it's the only way they know to put an astronaut into earth orbit. The Mercury astronauts and engineers need to figure out how to launch a man into space on top of a converted intercontinental ballistic missile.

Ep.2: FRIENDS AND RIVALS
For Project Gemini, a new generation of astronauts arrive at NASA -- their mission, to test all the procedures required to land men on the moon and bring them safely back to earth. Each Gemini mission launches two men into space, leading to some of NASA's greatest moments -- Ed White's spacewalk, the first orbital rendezvous of Gemini 6 and 7.

Ep.3: LANDING THE EAGLE
The Apollo program is set to achieve the ultimate prize of the Space Race, landing men on the moon. But a fire breaks out in the pressurized capsule of Apollo 1, resulting in the deaths of Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. But NASA's astronauts and engineers turn tragedy into triumph with the first manned launch of the formidable Saturn V rocket, lifting three astronauts into deep space for the first time. Two missions later and NASA is ready to land men on the moon in the ultimate test of America's spacefaring vision.

Ep.4: THE EXPLORERS
Now that NASA has mastered the lunar round trip, they want to explore more of the moon's mysteries. With Apollo 13, they face their biggest crisis in space -- returning a damaged spacecraft back safely to earth. Undaunted, NASA launches more moon missions and a new lunar rover that allows wide-ranging lunar surface expiditions. Apollo 17 is the longest moon mission and the last time man would set foot on the moon for generations. In a new phase of the space program, NASA converts an unused Saturn V rocket into Skylab, America's first space-station. But by the time it reaches orbit it's badly damaged. For the first time, astronauts will have to work outside the spaceship to save the space-station.

Ep.5: THE SHUTTLE
For its first 20 years, NASA launches capsules carrying a maximum of three people. But new requirements for a bigger cargo bay prompt a breakthrough in spacecraft design. The development of the reusable shuttle leads to a revolutionary approach to space travel, but somebody has to test fly it in space for the first time. That requires a true test pilot, John Young, the man who sat alongside Gus Grissom on the first Gemini flight. NASA's manned programs are again leading the way, but space travel remains as dangerous as ever and tragedy again strikes NASA when the Challenger explodes.

Ep.6: HOME IN SPACE
One of the most complex instruments ever built, the Hubble Space Telescope is expected to transform our understanding of the Universe. But once it is in orbit, NASA discovers a serious problem, a defective main mirror that leaves Hubble short-sighted. NASA sends a team of astronauts to fix the problem, but it won’t be easy. It is NASA’s greatest and highest profile mission since the Apollo era. It gives NASA the confidence to begin construction on the International Space Station. More astronauts are in space simultaneously than ever before. And despite the tragedy of Columbia, NASA’s astronauts are pioneering the way back to the moon, Mars and beyond.

Although no capsule has ever made a successful launch into orbit, there is no other known way of reaching space. The Mercury astronauts and engineers need to figure out how to launch a man into space on top of a converted intercontinental ballistic missile.

3) Landing the Eagle
As the men of NASA are closing in on claiming the ultimate prize, a walk on the moon, a fire breaks out in the Apollo 1 pressurized capsule, killing astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. But the tragedy was turned to triumph when the Saturn V rocket safely exited the atmosphere, headed for the moon....a first. Two missions later and NASA is ready to land men on the moon in the ultimate test of America's space faring vision.

4) The Explorers
Now that NASA has successfully made the orbiting trip to the moon and back, it's time for the next step and explore the moon. But Apollo 13 would prove a more serious challenge when it is damaged while in space and a plan must be made to help the astronauts return home safely. Undaunted, more expeditions would come, including bringing the land rover to the moon for further exploration. Apollo 17 is the longest moon mission and the last time man would set foot on the moon for generations. In a new phase of the space program, NASA converts an unused Saturn V rocket into Skylab, a reusable American space station. but it arrives damaged and calls for a walk in space for the astronauts to make repairs.

5) The Shuttle
The development of a new, larger spacecraft with a cargo bay brings an end for the older capsule vehicles. The new craft would revolutionize space travel, but someone would need to drive it. This would require a true test pilot, and John Young, the man who sat alongside Gus Grissom on the first Gemini flight was the chosen man. NASA's manned programs are again leading the way, but space travel remains as dangerous as ever and tragedy again strikes when the space shuttle Challenger explodes, killing all aboard.

But once it was in space NASA discovered a major problem, the deflective mirror was misaligned and would need to be repaired. It is NASA's greatest and highest profile mission since the Apollo era.
