"We Are The Explorers" Video Showcases Legacy Of Exploration, Future NASA Missions
 
 
HOUSTON -- A new video produced by NASA and narrated by actor Peter Cullen of "Transformers" fame celebrates humankind's inherent need to explore through the past, present and future.

"We Are the Explorers" shows how humanity constantly has reached for new heights, broken new boundaries and taken steps that previously were considered impossible. The video highlights NASA’s tradition of exploration, from the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs, to the space shuttle and International Space Station. It looks ahead to vehicles being built now that will take humans farther than they ever have gone, including the new Orion crew vehicle and Space Launch System.

"NASA and its missions – historic, present and future – have the ability to inspire," said NASA Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Bill Gerstenmaier. "This video celebrates not only the historic steps we have made as an agency, but also the great journeys that await us as we operate the orbiting laboratory that is the International Space Station and build the vehicles necessary to expand human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit."

The video is available to view on a variety of NASA and social media Web sites. It also can be freely used by teachers and students for educational purposes.
