About the Movie

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed that NASA would send astronauts to the Moon by the end of the decade. The Space Race inspired an entire generation to pursue careers in science, technology and engineering, creating the technological boom of the 1990s. As the balance of world power shifted, interest in space exploration declined and NASA became old news. Fight for Space examines the past, present and future of the US Space Program through in-depth interviews with the world’s leading experts on space travel, including astronauts Jim Lovell & Story Musgrave, astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, engineers, space industry entrepreneurs and others. Restored film footage from the National Archives and years of historical research take you on an exciting journey from the beginning of NASA, into the future, re-awakening our sense of wonder, discovery and desire to reach for the stars.

A Call to Action

We got to the moon during a volatile decade 50 years ago. Saying in 2017 that we have too many problems here on Earth to do anything in space is a cop-out. We need big, bold, ambitious projects that leave us optimistic about the future.
