Special Report: Something big is coming to the space program

News

It’s an eyewitness news special report something big is coming to the space program. For the first time in eight years, the US will launch Astronauts back into space from US soil.

Our own Marina Jurica gives a look behind the scenes.

It’s been eight long years since Atlantis made its final journey into space and NASA’s shuttle program ended.

After decades of incredible scientific exploration and the building of the International Space Station, we seemed to lose our passion for the outer limits.

But now the passion is back with a new invigorating generation of space explorers, we are embracing a commercial crew and international partners in this space race 2.0.

In this eyewitness news exclusive, we take you to the historic launch pad 41.
