This Old House

West Palm Beach (Part 3 of 8) (#2021)

As hurricanes are a serious threat to houses in Southern Florida, precautions are taken to help the buildings survive the storms. Hurricane resistant replacement windows arrive at the West Palm Beach project house, the shatterproof glass does away with need for clumsy storm shutters. Host Steve Thomas and master carpenter Norm Abram visit one of this centuries' most ambitious and complex construction project-NASA's International Space Station-at Florida's Kennedy Space Center. Steve receives an exclusive tour of the Space Station's components while Norm learns about the specific job performed by various space tools. Finally they visit the Space Shuttle Atlantis, which will haul this equipment 240 miles into space. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
