This is the exciting story of NASA’s research center Langley, the birthplace of America’s Space Program. 100 years ago, something was established that changed the way we fly, the way we explore space and how we study our home planet. Langley, located in Hampton, Virginia, is also THE place where Neil Armstrong, the first human to step foot on the moon, learned to do so. “If a competition were held to determine the organization that had accomplished the largest number of advancements to aeronautic and aerospace progress, my nomination would be this place”, Armstrong once said. Today, researchers at Langley also focus on some of the biggest technical challenges of our time, such as global climate change, access to space and revolutionizing airplanes and the air transportation system. This 45-minute documentary looks back across 100 years, explains how this place works today and peeks into the future. For more please check out www.nasa.gov
