July 20th 2012 - 43 years ago Apollo 11 touched down on the surface of the Moon.
Today, we have no plans to go back to the moon. Any manned to mission to mars has been postponed until the late 2030s. This is not the mark of a nation with great ambitions. Today, we must Fight For Space.
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 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.
We visited The National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, CO where we interviewed: Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Robert Zubrin, Bill Nye, Leroy Chaio, and more. We have visited SETIcon in Santa Clara, CA where we spoke with some of the top minds in astronomy. We have traveled to Huntington Beach to interview Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, a key figure on the house space committee. We have interviewed scientists, engineers, politicians, teachers, students, astronauts, astronomers, and many more.
