The great visionary and science fiction writer Robert Heinlein was once quoted as saying "Once you're in low Earth orbit (LEO), you're halfway to anywhere." Today on Discovery Enterprise we explore this realm close to home which is the gateway to the rest of the solar system and beyond.
Low Earth Orbit, 120 miles (193 kilometres) above sea level, is where the majority of space exploration has occurred and new commercial endeavours are being developed.
It will also be staging ground for the next ultimate thrill of your life - Space Diving.
