On the Shoulders of Giants trailer
On August 31, 2004 Lockheed Martin launched the last of the Atlas IIAS rockets on a classified mission for the National Reconnaissance Office. This launch marked the final flight of the stage-and-a-half Atlas booster and the end of one of the longest chapters in the history of American aviation. Atlas became a workhorse and an American icon as it achieved a string of historic firsts. This film is dedicated to four generations of women and men who worked to buile the legacy of Atlas...a legacy that will live on as Atlas V carries the dream into the future.
For 50 years, the United States relied on Titan for its most important national space missions, human space launches, solar system exploration and its many successful launches of our country's most critical military spacecraft--all of these have been the mission of the Titan program. This documentary is an important history of Titan's legacy and is dedicated to the women and men who were the honored to be members of the Titan team.
