The seventh hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1986 and U.S. space exploration. Among the topics Mr. Friedman addressed were both successes and failures of the U.S. space program, the past and future of the space shuttle, and various proposals over the years for new exploration projects. He also responded to questions and comments from viewers.

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Mary McGinnis of Rupert, Idaho, as well as several clips from previous programs were aired.

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
