"Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey to Tomorrow" shines a spotlight on NASA's historic accomplishments in space, from the moon landing to Mars exploration to journeys to the outer edges of the solar system and beyond. More than a moving portrait of NASA's many accomplishments in space, "Above and Beyond" also sheds light on the agency's lesser-known area of focus and the vital role NASA has played in measuring the health of our home planet. However, as far as NASA may travel, its gaze has always returned to Earth, monitoring our seas and skies, our ice and sands in an ongoing struggle to meet today's great challenge: protecting our planet.
