Transcript: Space Probes "8 Canadian Star Voyageurs" | Oct 02, 2004

A black slate appears with a title that reads "8 Canadian Star Voyageurs."

A space shuttle stands upright held by the shuttle arm.

A caption reads "Carmen: Marche du toreador, Georges Bizet."

An astronaut in his forties with short, side-parted light gray hair, clean-shaven, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Marc Garneau."

Now an astronaut in her forties with short, straight, middle-parted dark brown hair, with thin glasses, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Roberta Bondar."

Now another astronaut in his forties with balding dark brown hair, clean-shaven, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Steve Maclean."

Another astronaut in his forties with short, side-parted, dark brown hair, a moustache, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Chris Haffield."

Another astronaut in his forties with straight, side-parted dark brown hair, clean-shaven, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Bjarni Tryggvason."

Another astronaut in his forties with short brown hair, a thick moustache, and wearing an orange space suit appears on screen with a caption that reads "Dafydd Williams."

Lastly an astronaut in her forties with shoulder-length curly brown hair pulled back in a ponytail and wearing an orange space suit appears with a caption that reads "Julie Payette."

Now all the astronauts walk into the shuttle.

The shuttle takes off.

Clips of the astronauts having fun appear on screen. One of them blows bubbles, another flies around, another one eats a twirling floating carrot, another shaves. Some of them walk around outside with white space suits and work on the space station.

All seven astronauts gather round in the middle of the station wearing white and gray striped shirts and blue pants and wave with a small white and red Canadian flag with a maple leaf in the middle.

The credits roll.
