The HISTORY DETECTIVES season premiere launches into space for an exhilarating hour exploring the excitement, promise, and ingenuity that fueled America’s foray into space exploration. First, detective Tukufu Zuberi tracks a scrap of metallic Mylar that could be one of America’s early satellites — balloons — in the segment "Satelloon." Then, in the "Space Boot" segment, Elyse Luray tries on a jury-rigged ski boot with a magnetic metal brick bolted to the bottom that may be one of the first prototypes for a NASA space boot. Finally, in the segment "Moon Museum," Gwendolyn Wright investigates the audacious notion that Andy Warhol’s art may be on the moon.
