I saw about 20 minutes and really enjoyed it. Commentary by our astronauts.

I was able to download the HD version directly from NASA. It's available in Windows Media or Quicktime formats.

Update: It's only a 15 minute "greatest hits" version of the 90 minute documentary that's available for download. Can't get the non-HD version to load in my browser so I don't know if that version is the full one or not.
