Sixty years ago, the world watched in wonder at the dawning of the space age. Humankind's first flights into space and the landing on the moon showed the seemingly impossible was achievable. Now we are on the brink of a new space revolution. Space travel has never been so accessible. The entrepreneurial vision of business tycoon Elon Musk and his Space X business teamed with more affordable and reliable technology has resulted in a space revolution that is giving rise to a whole new world of possibilities. Four Corners examines the extraordinary opportunities and challenges of the new space age, in which travel beyond our own planet is suddenly affordable.

Deep Blues It's easy to look at Mick Fanning and think life's a beach. He's a three-time world surfing champion who has earned millions of dollars doing what he loves. He even part-owns a brewery. But what on the surface looks like a dream existence masks years of pain and suffering below. Living Hell Kylie Moore-Gilbert's situation is grim. She's about to start her third year as a prisoner in Iran and is being held in an unimaginably squalid, coronavirus-infested jail outside the capital, Tehran. Her crime, according to the Iranian regime, is that she's a spy. Dr Moore-Gilbert emphatically denies the accusation, but her appeals have all been ignored or rejected. Katy's Smile Reporter Tara Brown first caught up with pop superstar Katy Perry back in March when she was visiting Australia to support victims of the catastrophic bushfires.

Party Games It's no surprise that politics is a dirty business, but rarely do we see just how grubby it is. An exception was two months ago when 60 Minutes, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age exposed the ALP's faceless man, Adem Somyurek, as a bully and a misogynist. As a result of reporter Nick McKenzie's story, Somyurek was immediately expelled from the ALP and two other Victorian ministers resigned from their portfolios. Now McKenzie has turned his attention to the other side of politics, where he's discovered it's also not immune to dodgy dealing and dubious behaviour. The Good Doctor You know these are strange days indeed when an immunologist, albeit a very good one, becomes a household name. But that's exactly what has happened to Dr Anthony Fauci. His expertise in fighting the coronavirus pandemic has made him a hero to many, but not his boss, the US president. Talk about shooting the messenger - Donald Trump continually undermines his chief scientific adviser, calling him alarmist, and scoffing when the doctor urges caution about reopening the economy. But Dr Fauci's not worried. Instead he's getting on with trying to beat COVID-19. In an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes, he shares important news with Tara Brown about the race for a vaccine and the way Australia is tackling this nightmare. Despicable Him If every mention of your name was preceded by the word 'conman', you'd probably realise what a despicable person you are. For Peter Foster, that's been his lot in life for more than three decades. But in June, 60 Minutes reported how Foster was more than a career fraudster with accusations he had attempted to hire a hitman to take out one of his enemies. On Thursday there was a welcome development in the case. A police investigation into Foster's nefarious activities led to his arrest on the idyllic sands of a Port Douglas beach, and only 60 Minutes was there to catch the dramatic moment.
