"This program documents the inspirational odyssey of an Idaho schoolteacher attempt to fly in space - a 23-year story of perseverance. From more than 11,000 applicants to the 1985 Teacher-in-Space program, McCall Elementary School teacher Barbara Morgan was chosen to be the backup to Christa McAuliffe. When McAuliffe is killed in the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger in 1986, Morgan's dream of flying is threatened. History dictates another course. Using rare footage, as well as interviews with Morgan and friends, colleagues, students and family, this film shows how Morgan becomes a full-fledged astronaut, overcoming additional, sometimes tragic, challenges. On August 8, 2007, Morgan and her crewmates triumphantly launched in the shuttle Endeavor."
