What’s going on up there? (56min)

People have been talking about space since the first humans lifted their
eyes to ponder the stars. Like many of the technologies we now take for
granted, people have come to see space exploration as something that
happens almost automatically.This film examines the risks and benefits of
sacrifices made on the road to revitalizing the space industry. From hard-
working scientists and environmentalists--even a college student in Kuwait
who wants to be the first Muslim woman in space--to Hollywood filmmakers,
entrepreneurs, psychiatrists, historians, lawyers and pre-schoolers, this
doc offers conversations with professionals and ordinary citizens on all
sides of the space debate. Introduced by Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek), who
once again asks us what Earthlings will do with the final frontier.
