Narrated by Patrick Stewart of Star Trek, Space Age is a broad overview of the history of space exploration. Produced in association with the National Academy of Science, each video uses interviews, footage, and extensive computer animation to examine man's encounters with the final frontier. This episode examines how deep space probes and orbital telescopes have enhanced our understanding of the universe surrounding us. Also included are discussions of ground-based sensors like radio telescopes and what these eyes have added to our understanding.
