43 years ago Apollo 11 touched down on the surface of the Moon. Did you know that there is currently no concrete space missions organized to go back to the moon? No space missions to travel to the moon? Any manned mission to mars has been postponed until the late 2030s.
Filmmaker and space exploration advocate, Paul Hildebrandt is looking to create a feature length documentary exploring the future of our space program. Fight for Space is a project attempting to raise funds via Kickstarter. Watch this short-trailer as inspiration and a reminder that you want to be a part of an ambitious nation. You want to “fight for space.”
More about the film from the words of Paul Hildebrandt: Since the Apollo era of the 1960s, NASA’s budget has been shrinking and our ambitions in space have been decreasing. We are producing a feature length documentary that will examine the reasons why our space program is not all it can be. We are also going to show that space IS worth the time, money, and energy that it needs, not for only exploration and scientific reasons but for economic, planetary security, and cultural reasons as well. Many problems have occurred in just the past 10 years that have lead to the consistent underfunding of NASA, the cancellation of multiple space programs, and the decline of America’s role in space. We have taken the first step and made an initial investment out of our own pocket to travel to many locations and interview the top experts in space policy, astronomy, engineering, astrophysics, the sciences, and space exploration.
