Don’t miss Discovery’s “When We Left Earth: The Nasa Missions”

It’s not often I pimp television shows during the summer. The ridiculous reality shows that litter my screen during the summer months literally make me pull out my DVD collection in search of some quality TV. But for the next two weeks, there is one show that is worth your time to watch.

The Discovery Channel’s three-part series When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions is fantastic. It’s a three-part series that began this past Sunday. If you missed it, you can catch the repeat of part one this Saturday at 9 p.m. The final two installments will air on Sundays at 9 p.m.

The series shows historical footage of the previous space missions and follows the U.S. journey into space. For those of us under 40, it’s a chance to put faces to names like Alan Shepherd, Neil Armstrong, Chuck Yeager and Buzz Aldren.

I watched the first part of the series, and was mesmerized. I know I usually spend time here talking about fluff shows, but get your geek on with me and check this one out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
