Astrospies - Nova (2008)

Spy satellites and space junk aren’t the only orbiting objects we’ve had to worry about. Tonight’s NOVA episode, Astrospies, reveals that the U.S. Air Force-run program, Manned Orbiting Laboratory, had more to do with astro peeping toms than lab work. In the mid-sixties, when the program began, the public was told that the project was to place military astronauts in space to conduct scientific research, when in reality MOL was designed to be an orbiting spy station, complete with two astronauts manning intelligence-gathering instruments like a telescope that could focus on a three-inch blip back on Earth.
