Bloomberg will air "Star Wars: The Battle to Build the Next Shuttle," a 30-minute television special on Wednesday (May 7) at 9 p.m. EDT.
Bloomberg's "The Next Space Race" is a journey through the booming business of space exploration.

The International Space Station is a near zero-gravity laboratory dedicated to scientific research. The end of NASA's shuttle program in 2011 left the world with only one way to get there, buy a seat from the Russians. NASA is holding a competition challenging private enterprise to build America's next spacecraft.

Boeing, SpaceX, and Sierra Nevada are all multi-billion dollar aerospace companies competing to win the NASA contract that could cement dominance in the emerging space industry. Bloomberg gets rare access to these space pioneers, including a tour of SpaceX with CEO Elon Musk.
