Searching for Skylab is an independently-produced documentary made for people like you, to let you see and hear the real stories behind Skylab for themselves, some of which have never been told before!
The film is packed with exclusive interviews, allowing you to understand why its story remains one of the greatest, albeit mostly forgotten, American triumphs of all time!
Astronauts Rhea Seddon and Robert “Hoot” Gibson joined authors David Hitt and Heather R. Smith on May 31, 2014 at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s 3D Theater in Huntsville, AL to discuss the authors’ new book, Bold They Rise, covering the early years of the Space Shuttle Program, from inception up through the Challenger accident.
