When We Left Earth

This weekend, the Discovery Channel will be releasing their upcoming series, When We Left Earth, on Sunday at 9 pm. The program, which lasts six hours over three episodes, chronicles the history of NASA, and takes a look at it in high def.
Space history is something that I've gotten really interested in over the past year or two. There's been a lot that's covered, and I'll be interested to see what the program brings that's new to the field. Currently, my favorite space history resource is a book series called Outward Odyssey (U of Nebraska Press) which is extremely detailed. I guess this new series has a lot of unseen footage, which should be cool to see.
