Richard Garriott recently became the first son of an astronaut to go to space - but this is no millionaire's joy ride. He built his fortune in computer games and pioneered private space travel to make his dream come true: from his training in Russia to his launch in Kazahkstan to the dramatic, never before seen footage inside the capsule during fiery re-entry, this is a historic moment in human space travel. Not just for space fans, this is a film that will inspire anyone who works tirelessly to make their dream come true.
Positive and Fascinating
My wife and I just attended a screening of this documentary and really enjoyed it! Richard Garriot aka Lord British comes across as someone who's realizing a life long dream. The amount of dedication and passion is inspiring. I mean, he had a life threatening liver transplant in order to make it past the medical exams. That's hardcore! Seeing the pride in his father's eyes (Owen Garriot, former NASA astronaut) was also a high point of the film. As a fan of Lord British, the Ultima games, and astronomy... this was fun movie to see!
