NASA: 50 Years of Exploration and Discovery

July 29th, 2008 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the beginning of the greatest era of exploration and discovery in human history. Perhaps future generations will look back on this era of human history and view it as a pivotal moment in humanity’s cultural evolution. We live in the epoch when humankind has taken the very first steps in becoming a multi-planetary species and a spacefaring civilization.

We at Discovery Enterprise would like to commemorate this auspicious occasion and all the men and women of NASA past and present, who through their dedication and team work made this all possible with a small yet very special tribute. Your efforts are paving the way for the next chapter of the Space Age and will ensure our long term survival as a species.

May the next fifty years be just as productive and awe inspiring.

To mark the occasion we at Discovery Enterprise would like to give our readers the chance to share in the festivities with the folowing videos – the entire series of the Discovery Channel’s monumental documentary “When We Left Earth”.

When We Left Earth – Part 01 & 02 – Ordinary Superman
