best of all time
22 July 2013 | by vijay_vvbSee all my reviews

i have watched this episode in national geographic channel, and I downloaded all the episodes from internet .If you want to learn or know something you have to browse and download many files and you have to watch dozens of videos and you have to do a research to know about it.But in such cases this is something different there is a episode about space station .This episode narrates about the history and technology and the upgrades done over it in years,and the hurdles that the team faces to create it and how did they manage to find a solution for the problem with an excellent cg works.In the end of the episode you feel satisfied and you have a great feeling that you have learned and gained knowledge .Hats of to director and his team and the production unit for presenting an amazing episode. All things can be learned in just 50 minutes .
