"NASA's Destination Tomorrow™: Bringing the Future into Focus" is designed for educators, parents and lifelong learners by NASA Langley's Office of Education. This educational, informative program builds on the premise that much of NASA's aeronautical research focuses on creating today's knowledge to solve tomorrow's problems.
Program 10 consists of five exciting segments. In the "Behind the Scenes" segment, viewers will learn about how NASA is studying the Northern Lights; in the "Tech Watch" segment, viewers will learn about a parachute that is attached to a plane, rather than a person; viewers will learn about World War II aircraft in the "Retrospective" segment; viewers see new satellites which may help predict weather better in the "On the Runway" segment; and viewers find out how air traffic control works in the "How it Works" segment.
This program was first broadcast on NASA TV Education File Schedule June 16, 2003.
