A brillant film! I so enjoyed learning through the filmmaker the many contributions made to the Space program shown through the eyes of Architect and Artist Chesley Bonestell. The film was thoughtful and educational. It had the viewer captivated with his varied career. So much can be learned from the early space pioneers and this film clearly demonstrates this. A must see for all those interested in the early beginnings of the space program as well as budding architects. I truly enjoyed the film and will for now look at the moon differently.
