“Space Cowboys” quotes(2000)
Plot – A group of Air Force test pilots, called the Daedalus Team, breaks up when space research gets assigned to NASA. Forty years later, the Russian satellite Ikon gets damaged, putting Russia under a total communications blackout. NASA official Bob Gerson knows that Ikon has the same guidance system that Skylab used to have, and therefore its designer Frank Corvin should be able to repair it. However Frank is not going to take the job unless he can work with his team, so the Daedalus Team is reunited and the operation will be historic.
