All our films are streaming the Month of June until July 4th live on Asteroid Day TV

We have completed our fourth film in the “Apollo Reflections” series, this one featuring Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 Lunar Module Pilot: “Rusty Schweickart: Apollo 9 & Beyond”

Check out the prologue for the film “Rusty Schweickart: Apollo 9 & Beyond”:

 

In this profoundly beautiful and moving film, Apollo 9 Astronaut Rusty Schweickart discusses the Apollo 9 mission, his life-altering spacewalk, and our cosmic birth. Rusty describes testing the Lunar Module, the first true spaceship that would four month later land men on the moon; his historic spacewalk, the first EVA of the Apollo era; and the incredible beauty of the Earth from space.

Beyond the Apollo 9 mission itself, Rusty goes much deeper to explore the philosophical and evolutionary implications of humanity’s first steps into the cosmos, describing the powerful effects of his “five minutes” alone on the Lunar Module porch as he observed the Earth below and pondered the big questions of existence – questions he would come to answer back on Earth.

The Apollo Reflections films look back at the memories and imagery of the Apollo era as well as the influences the Apollo Program had on those who were witness to it. Focusing on the personal reflections of Apollo Astronauts and their mission photography, these documentary interviews not only reflect on the past, they also reflect the influences of those missions on people today – and how they can continue to inspire tomorrow.

As the Apollo astronauts reflect on their historic missions, we also experience the wonder of Apollo and space exploration through the stories of people inspired by those missions to see ourselves and our place in the cosmos more clearly.
