**ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BINGE VIEWING PASS HOLDERS **

Over 20 years ago, rival nations put aside political and cultural differences to come together in a demonstration of international co-operation to create something unique – the International Space Station. 

Drawing together personal stories from men and women from around the world who have been a part of this extraordinary endeavour, the film provides a fascinating insight into human nature and our relationship with planet Earth and space – the great unknown.

This breath-taking film celebrates the remarkable achievement of technology, international collaboration, scientific endeavour and human bravery that the ISS represents, and provides an insight into the beauty and majesty of space, and the earth below.

The Space Station remains a constant reminder of humankind’s frailties but also its ability to reach beyond the unimaginable to life in space, but still within sight of home and the people we love. The film features Astronauts Bill Shepherd, Cady Coleman, Frank Culberston, Koichi Wakata, Peggy Whitson, Samantha Cristoforetti, Scott Kelly and Tim Peake.
