Where No One Has Gone Before
In Where No One Has Gone Before, American astronaut Bernard Harris and German astronaut Ulf Merbold rehearse a normal maintenance job for two astronauts: replacement of the Hubble Space Telescope's solar array drive electronics. For the first time, astronauts far removed in physical space, one in Houston and the other in Darmstadt, perform complex tasks simultaneously in a virtual environment.
