Immense faith of a special education teacher in the abilities of his students realize a dream that remains a dream for quite a many. Being the first special education team to attend the NASA's prestigious space camp program, Mike and his class reminds us of the remarkable power of the human spirit.Written by

A true story based on the book, "A Smile as Big as the Moon" by Mike Kersjes and Joe Layden. See more »
Even though the story is set in 1988-89 some of the facilities shown at the Alabama Space and Rocket Center - especially the Saturn V center - are all post 2000 constructions. See more »
Missing the most important part
This movie is missing the most important part; the part that very few writers can understand and therefore the world desperately needs. This movie is missing the good feelings; the support and understanding and the love. If you do not understand that, then you also need to see the part that is missing.
I truly doubt that the real-life teacher motivated by yelling and criticizing as was shown in this movie.
I think this movie does a great disservice to the world by giving the impression that this is the way that great things are accomplished. I hope someday someone will make movies show how love is really done.
