This has been forwarded to me through the American Astronautical Society. See the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign here.
In a captivating documentary by filmmaker David Ruck, "I Want To Be An Astronaut" follows Blair as he pursues his dream of being an astronaut, while asking the tough questions we as Americans must consider:
  • What happens to our most promising young people, like Blair, if they can no longer dream of space?

  • Will there be a human space program in the future?

  • What will happen to our country, and its technological leadership in the world, if there are no more astronauts?
"I Want To Be An Astronaut" asks — and attempts to answer — these questions through interviews with leading space experts as well as exclusive footage of the country's space centers. Above all, though, the compelling film generates a dialogue not simply about science, but the future of our nation.
