NASA and the Video Library
May 14, 2010
Yesterday’s hearing on the future of human space exploration reminded us of all the programming related to NASA in the Archives. It is a treasure trove for anyone who wants to study the evolution of U.S. space policy. C-SPAN also covered the launches and landings of many of the shuttle flights. Just type in NASA launch and you will see many of them. NASA rover brings up coverage of the rover mission to Mars.
Type in NASA Columbia Launch and you can see the launch of Shuttle Columbia which exploded on reentry February 1, 2003. Type in Shuttle Columbia Explosion and see all the programming related to the explosion. The accident occurred during a live call-in and C-SPAN remained with the programming all day.
There is a lot there. Don’t miss the many speeches by astronauts. There is wenty-three years of public policy related to NASA including coverage of some of the actual in-flight maneuvers. Try searching and see what you can find.
