Co-produced by National Geographic and narrated by Sigourney Weaver, “Asteroid: Mission Extreme” takes audiences on an epic journey to the rocky surfaces of debris hurtling through space. How have these asteroids already shaped our destiny as a species here on Earth, and how might we someday harness their velocity as a stepping stone to other worlds? The challenges are enormous, but an extreme asteroid mission could ultimately lead us to protect our planet and inhabit others. Explore what it would take for astronauts to reach an asteroid and how such an adventure could benefit humankind. (25 minutes)
