The Space Documentary That Needs To Get Made [Video]
My wife and I disagree on the whole man in space thing. She is a firm believer that man has no business going to places like the moon and other planets as long as our world is the way it is. I on the other hand firmly believe that mankind is doomed to extinction if we don’t get off of this planet and better sooner than later.
So when the US government announce the end of NASA shuttle program and any manned space exploration I was obviously quite disheartened. That attitude only increases with each day that goes by especially when you hear the news that the Russian cargo shuttle to the ISS failed in its attempt to connect.
We need space exploration and all the incredible things that can trickle down from such programs and this is something that Paul Hildebrandt want to make people understand with a documentary that he wants to make called Flight For Space: Exploring the Future of Manned Spaceflight.
The documentary will include people like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson along with a whole bunch of astronauts, astronomers and engineers as they talk about the reason why the current anti-space attitude needs to be changed.
To fund the making of the documentary Hildebrandt has headed to Kickstarter to see if the money needed can be raised so check out its page for more information.
This is the trailer of the documentary and it only make me wish even more that I could donate to the Kickstarter project because I would jump all over this.
