- Program Description
In the winter of 1996/'97, three global challengers lifted off to compete in one of the last great aeronautic challenges: a non-stop journey around the world in a balloon. NOVA was on board with all three attempts, including that of the acknowledged "underdog" balloonist, American Steve Fossett, who made it all the way from Missouri to a remote corner of India against incredible odds. Through this adventure, NOVA reveals the engineering challenges and foibles of weather that make or break these balloonists' dreams of circumnavigating the globe.
