Space Shuttle Columbia: Mission of Hope is a unique story that interweaves the heights of scientific achievement, the depths of a nation's cruelty, the private grief of a boy who came of age during the Holocaust, and the public mourning of many nations in the aftermath of the Columbia Shuttle disaster. Combining historical and ethical inquiry, the film reaches across faiths and nationalities to tell a truly human story.

A documentary looking at the last voyage of the Columbia into space, this focuses on a single member of the astronaut crew, an Israeli and son of a Holocaust survivor. The documentary focuses on the human side of the story, giving us insight into his background and as well into his fellow crewmates. Absorbing and compelling.
