Final Frontier

The future of manned space flight is entering an uncertain phase, our once vivid dreams of returning to the Moon and landing on Mars shattered by budget cuts and lack of will. This month on The Sky at Night, Sir Patrick Moore discusses the demise of the shuttle programme with astronaut Piers Sellers, whilst also going on an interstellar journey with Project Icarus, the visionary idea of how man might one day visit other worlds.
