Space is no longer a new frontier. It's a vital part of our world. The 6 hour Space Age series hosted by Patrick Stewart takes a close-up view of that new world and tells the story of how it has changed our lives. From the dream driven hopes of the early rocket pioneers to the far future, Space Age documents the latest advances in the age-old quest to go further, see deeper, and find out more. State-of-the-art special effects, "pre-creations" of future space missions, and worldwide location filming give each fascinating program in the series an eye-opening view of the way space exploration has revolutionized how we see ourselves, our planet, and the universe beyond.
