Produced by Alenia Aerospazio, this video focusses on the Italian-made Mini Pressurised Logistics Module [MPLM].
The video starts with a sequence illustrating mankind's evolution from ape-like ancenstors to a species capable of dreaming of a space station. After a section illustrating both the exterior and interior of the International Space Station - currently under construction - we see the design and construction of the MPLM. Neutral buoyancy training on a submerged mock-up of the MPLM [featuring ESA astronaut Claude Nicollier] is included, followed by the 1998 delivery of the MPLM to NASA's Kennedy Space Centre by the 'Super Transporter' aircraft. The video ends with shots of the Module being lifted into a cleanroom at KSC.
