Prepare to be inspired as actor Sean Astin narrates this documentary for students about the astronaut Barbara Morgan. Morgan was the backup to teacher-in-space Christa McAuliffe. After McAuliffe died in the Challenger explosion in 1986, Morgan never gave up hope of going into space herself. She achieved her goal in August, 2007, blasting off on the shuttle Endeavour.
