The Wonderful: Stories from the Space Station

Over twenty years ago, rival nations put aside political and cultural differences and came together in a demonstration of international cooperation to create something unique - The International Space Station. For the first time in history, driven by his innate impulse to explore, man had a permanently inhabited foothold in the heavens. The Wonderful draws together personal stories from men and women from around the world who have been a part of this extraordinary endeavor, providing a fascinating insight into human nature and our relationship with planet Earth. These testimonials bring an intimacy and uniqueness to the story - bringing life in space alive, yet showing the strong emotional ties that bind these astronauts to the earth - and we are left not only with a sense of the vast 'velvet bottomless bucket' of the universe, but also the remarkable resilience and potential of mankind.
