As the daughters of the baby boom reached adolescence, the American school system struggled to educate them on matters of sexual and social development. For teachers, classroom films about such topics were considered a godsend. They depicted the reproductive system in anatomical detail or through puzzling symbolism. Beyond sex education, classroom films addressed a wide array of social issues, from the importance of cooking skills to self-defense and how to appear more pleasing to others

This program takes the viewer on a rapid video tour of Earth's surface as seen from outer space. After explaining how the altitude of the viewer affects the amount of Earth's surface that is seen at one time, the video moves into a travelogue on some of the interesting features of Earth's continents as seen from space. Because the inclination of the Space Shuttle's orbit to Earth's equator did not carry the crew over Antarctica or the Arctic, these regions are not visited in the program

Microgravity: Focuses on four scientific disciplines in microgravity studies: fluid physics, materials science, biotechnology, and combustion. Experiments within these disciplines explore how the effects of buoyancy-driven convection and sedimentation, seen in ground-based laboratories, are diminished in space, allowing scientists to expand their knowledge in these areas. Describes the restrictions that gravity imposes on scientific experimentation and how they could be greatly reduced in the research environment of the Space Shuttle and later on in the International Space Station
Endeavour, then & now( Visual )
