When We Were Shuttle' is a feature-length documentary exploring the Space Shuttle Program through the eyes of some of the exceptional men and women who worked behind-the-scenes to make it fly. What in their opinions made the Program special? Why was it necessary? How did their involvement on Shuttle impact their lives, their families and the greater community of Florida’s Space Coast?


Through their recollections and personal archive, we get to the core of the humanity behind the Program, gaining a unique, grassroots look at Shuttle's legacy, from the thriving aerospace industry it sustained, to the dramatic effect the decision to retire Shuttle had when the Program ended in 2011.
