About this project
GETTING OUR YOUTH EXCITED ABOUT SCIENCE
We're about to release an incredible film about the people, places and awesome machines that take men and women into space - with your help via Kickstarter, we will get copies into schools nationwide - and at certain Backer levels, we'll even come present the final film at your designated school! It's a noble effort that supports STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics education.

You're Right, We Couldn't - the bulk of the funding has come from the film's producer, and much time and resources have been essentially 'donated' by people in the Hollywood establishment. NASA has not paid for any of it. The money we're raising now is to complete interviews with astronauts and other key people involved with the Space Shuttle program, and to get copies into the hands of educators and their students
We started almost two years ago, with a lot of support from NASA people. We covered the final three Shuttle missions, the first two (not open to media except for us) launches of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets, and the latest SpaceX launch to the International Space Station
The short answer is: We Asked ;-)
The longer answer is that with a lot of persistence, and with everyone involved knowing that we were capturing historical events that would not happen again, and utilizing state-of-the-art 3D/HD technology, it was logical that someone should get all this recorded. That someone ended up being, Us
