Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode of the acclaimed documentary series the Known Universe.
We have landed on the moon, and launched probes to explore distant worlds hundreds of millions of miles away. But when it comes to space travel, we are just babes in the woods.
Of the hundreds of launches we have made into space, only a handful have left Earths gravity. So what’s the problem? Well, for one, it’s a huge challenge just getting off the planet. If you want to get into space you have to fly fast and high. Find out just how tough and complicated future space travel can be on Known Universe - Escaping Earth.
This and other episodes of the Known Universe can be purchased from theNational Geographic Channel’s online store.
