Video: William Shatner Narrates 80-Minute NASA Space Shuttle Documentary

As NASA prepares to launch STS-135, the final mission of the Space Shuttle program on July 8, they’ve released a new documentary to commemorate the 30-year program.

Narrated by Star Trek‘s William Shatner, “The Space Shuttle” takes a closer look at the history of this revolutionary program.

An idea born in unsettled times becomes a feat of engineering excellence. The most complex machine ever built to bring humans to and from space and eventually construct the next stop on the road to space exploration.

    It’s so sad to see the shuttle program come to an end. But I guess you have to shelve the older technology to develop the next.
