2 More Days To Go

Posted by Dan Cohen (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter Family,

In the run up to this Thursday’s premiere we have been doing a lot of media interviews. A reporter asked me, “With such a tragic end to the Columbia mission, why would I look forward to watching your documentary?” I thought about that question when I was asked to write a guest blog. Check it out:

Space Shuttle Columbia: Mission of Hope is a journey of the human spirit. The remarkable story of the STS-107 crew, and a “mission within the mission,” as they demonstrated what can happen when we all work together for the greater good.

Two more days to go and the documentary will begin on PBS. If you haven’t been to the documentary web site yet, please check it out and share the link.

Attention Washington, DC residents – a reminder the documentary will premiere in the DC area next Tuesday, February 5th at 9pm on Maryland Public Television – MPT/22 and MPT/HD. Check your cable guide for the channel. And set your DVR.
