US prisoners aiming for the stars

Prisoners at San Quentin, one of the most notorious prisons in the US, now have a chance to work for NASA.

    Many US prisons give inmates the opportunity to learn new skills which could help them adjust to life outside their cells.

    One of the country's most notorious jails, however, is now going one step further.

    In partnership with NASA, San Quentin is offering prisoners the chance to contribute to the national space programme.
