ABOVE AND BEYOND: NASA’S JOURNEY TO TOMORROW
Nantucket, AFI Docs, Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, GlobeDocs
A celebration of the pioneering and continuing work of NASA.
I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
In 1961, President John F Kennedy famously challenged NASA to put a man on the moon by the decade’s end. This year, on the occasion of NASA’s 60th anniversary, acclaimed director Rory Kennedy, JFK’s niece, considers the agency’s breathtaking achievements and ability to inspire wonder: NASA has taken us to the moon, to the surface of Mars, and beyond the solar system, but, just as importantly, it has played a vital, ongoing role in expanding our knowledge of our own imperiled planet.
