Scientist is sent to investigate a faulty ejector seat, then sent into space to test it, showing an assortment of human weaknesses and strengths. Basically this is about the human predicament and drama, not space.
A dramatization about how the high level covert conspirators in the JFK assassination might have planned and plotted the assassination based on the data and facts of the case. It posits that a covert group of rogue intelligence agents, ultra-conservative politicians, unscrupulously greedy business interests, and free-lance assassins become increasingly alarmed at President Kennedy's policies, including his views on race relations, winding down the Vietnam War, and ending the oil depletion allowance. They decide to terminate him through an "executive action" utilizing three teams of well-trained snipers during JFK's visit to Dallas and place the blame on supposed CIA operative Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone assassin.Written by

At about 25 minutes, an doctor's affidavit used to justify Lee Harvey Oswald's family hardship discharge from the Marines is shown. It states that Oswald's mother is being treated for acute nasopharyngitis and will be under treatment for about six months.

Entertaining and interesting film which puts forward a seemingly plausible theory as to why JFK was assassinated.
The main thought seems to be that President Kennedy's ideas in regard to nuclear disarmament, racial equality and ensuring a square deal for America's most lowly paid workers were just too radical as far as the country's hard line conservatives were concerned.
Appears to have been generally well researched and non sensationalist.
However, it's a fair criticism to note that some of the finer points of period detail are slightly shaky. For example, some of the hairstyles and fashions definitely belong to the '70s rather than the early '60s. We have a '61 Chevy coupe with a tattered rear back seat which has obviously been parched by a decade of sun exposure. But these are minor points.
Don't worry too much about nit picking as this movie is most certainly well worth a look.
