A documentary trilogy entitled "Beginnings Of The Space Age" explores the intriguing characters and pivotal events that helped establish NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) as the world's leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system and beyond. Produced, written and directed by JPL's Blaine Baggett, a national Emmy award-winning documentarian, the three-part series leads viewers on a dramatic journey into America's history of space exploration that begins on the trails of the Pasadena Arroyo, launches the United States into earth orbit, touches the moon before the Apollo astronauts, and accomplishes the first-ever visit to another planet.
