A unique view of what it takes to get into space
For 50 years all the people that have left the bonds of earth to float in the microgravity of low earth orbit (and the handful that have broken even those bonds and ventured to the moon) have been civil servants. Only recently have private individuals - albeit with colossal amounts of cash - been able to join them. But the fact that they can at all is largely due to the determination of Richard Garriott. But for a few commercial difficulties he would have been the first private individual in space, as it happens he was the sixth. Man on a Mission is the documentary that follows him on the training and through the flight. If you are interested in space exploration and the life of the astronaut, then this is very mush a film not to be missed. Marred only by poor sound in some places (but hey, they couldn't take a full production crew up to the ISS!), it is well structured, inspiring and entertaining. I can't wait for his next mission.
