Inside the Space Station 2000 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Inside the Space Station (2000) was another fine quality space special on the ISS and is available for under $5.00. One topic especially interesting to me was a dedicated crew recovery system based on the X-38 lifting body research vehicle. This nifty looking craft was intended to be used as an emergency crew escape vehicle with the capacity to return an entire ISS crew. The Soyuz is limited to a crew of three and two Soyuz vehicles can’t always be counted on to be in place and ready in an emercency.
Full scale X-38 drop tests were performed using the B-52 and dessert landings were successfully made. Unfortunately, this project was cancelled and a lifeboat suitable for the ISS will hopefully be developed in time for the inevitable crisis in space based on the future Orion.
While not an IMAX production, this Discovery Channel product incorporated some very clear space footage as well as a diagrams of each module, and a timetable for ISS construction. Many interesting extras including: space station overview, space walks, Robonaut, and many others. Narrated by Liam Neeson and all for under $5.00!
