A behind-the-scenes journey with the video game legend, Richard Garriott, in his quest to become the first second-generation astronaut, from making his fortune to spending it ($30 million!) to reach the International Space Station via Russian rocket. From secret training in Moscow, to a rumbling launch from Kazakhstan, to 12 glorious days onboard the ISS, the adventure is captivating. And for the first time ever, a camera is rolling in the capsule during the fiery return to earth. Owen Garriott, his astronaut father, is there to greet him, welcoming us all to the next generation of human space travel.Written by

A thrilling and inspiring film
Saw this film last night and found it to be an extraordinary story and journey captured on film. Richard was very articulate, and specific about space traveling through out the film. The film is inspiring, informative, and full on full hearted humor. The film was educational but never dry. I have also enjoyed the amazing story about two generations that share the same interests and pride in pursuing their dreams and goals. Richard's determination and persistence captured my imagination.
Overall, this is an amazing film that you can watch with your children. It's educational, inspiring, and heartwarming.
Great job. I cannot wait to watch it again on the second screening and meet Richard in person.
