The Reviews for Fight For Space (2016) 1080p

"Fight for Space" is an eye-opening and thought-provoking, but incomplete doc.Reviewed bydave-mcclainVote: 7/10

What do the Internet, cell phone cameras, GPS, interstate highways, solar energy, smoke detectors, CAT scans, treadmills, water purification, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant lenses and cordless vacuums have in common? The answer is: space exploration. All of those things either came into being or exist in their current form because of the U.S. Space Program. More than just changing our daily lives, all of those innovations created new markets which expanded our economy. That is one of the major arguments in favor of increased space exploration in the Kickstarter-fueled documentary "Fight for Space" (NR, 1:32).

This doc features interviews with some of the most highly respected figures in the history of the space program (including former astronauts Jim Lovell and Story Musgrave and former NASA flight controller Gene Kranz), scientists (such as astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku and Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye) and exploration advocates (for example, Space X CEO Elon Musk, space journalist Marcia Smith and Rick Tumlinson, co-founder of the Space Frontier Foundation), just to name a few. Through a combination of interviews, rare archive footage, new graphics and an original score, writer/director Paul J. Hildebrandt gives us a brief history of NASA, a critical examination of the decisions and leadership of that organization and the U.S. government in regards to our space program, as well as an assessment of the program's current status and ideas about moving it forward – and why we should.

The film makes a number of compelling points that most Movie Fans may not have considered before or thought much about: The U.S. Space Program was not so much about exploration as it was a "crisis program" driven by Cold War competition with the Soviet Union and a desire to beat the Russians to the moon. After several trips to the moon in the late 1960s and early 70s, the U.S. just stopped sending astronauts and scientists on voyages of exploration, meaning that no human has been past low earth orbit in well over four decades. The space shuttle program actually represented a curtailment in NASA's original plans to build upon those successful moon landings. Ever since the Apollo program, government officials and NASA officials have been out of sync regarding plans and priorities for the space program and have failed to follow talk with viable programs and meaningful action. Unlike during the Apollo years, today's average American doesn't know what NASA is doing or why the agency is still relevant. And this is only the beginning. Not only does the film make other interesting points but it eventually strongly suggests how space exploration can move forward in the future, based on lessons of the past.

"Fight for Space" is an eye-opening and thought-provoking, but incomplete doc. Although most of the screen time is taken up by experts, Hildebrandt keeps the individual interview clips fairly short, making his points not with long-winded explanations, but with a large number of different voices extolling the same cause. What's more, the interviewees' passionate pronouncements draw the viewer in more than talking heads normally would. Unfortunately, the film doesn't include counterpoints to the opinions and assessments that it puts forward and it ignores the impact of NASA's current exploration programs that do not include manned missions. Nevertheless, Hildebrandt and his interview subjects effectively use the medium of film to get their message out there. This film, alongside the 2017 doc "Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo" and the 2016 Best Picture Oscar nominee "Hidden Figures", is strong enough to fan the flames of interest in space exploration? or at least fuel the conversation. "B+"

Greetings again from the darkness. Space … the final frontier. Or is itjust another political football? Director Paul Hildebrandt examines thespace program from all angles: past, present, and future. He enlistsexperts such as Astronauts Jim Lovell and Story Musgrave, physicist andauthor Michio Kaku, Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, NormanAugustine (Chairman of the Review of the United States Human SpaceFlights Committee), and numerous politicians, journalists, and formerNASA staffers. Passionate opinions and perspectives fill the run time,as do frustrations and hopes.

In 1961, President John F Kennedy pledged that NASA and the UnitedStates would send a man to the moon (and bring him back safely) by theend of the decade. On July 20, 1969 the Apollo 11 crew landed on themoon, and four days later returned safely to earth. The centralquestion being asked by the film is "Why did we stop?" The Space Raceshifted into high gear thanks to Russia's Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin. Itwas also responsible for inspiring an entire generation to pursuecareers in Science, Technology, and Engineering. Hindsight (and thosebeing interviewed here) tells us that, rather than a visionaryscientific research platform, the U.S. space program was actually a"Crisis Project" driven by ego and politics. How else do we answer thecurrent generation of kids when they ask, "Why aren't we there now?"Viewing the space program as a marketing campaign to the Americanpublic, Mr. Tyson is especially outspoken when he states that theeconomic and cultural benefits of a true scientific program are beyondargument. GPS and the internet are but two of the transformativedevelopments courtesy of the space program, and proof enough that amore scientific approach could lead to even more discoveries. Instead,it's pointed out that no scientists were included in the Apollomissions until Apollo 17, the final Apollo mission to the moon withastronauts. This occurred after the significant budget reduction in1970 that cancelled a couple of Apollo missions, setting the stage forthe program to end.

Discussions and criticisms of the Space Shuttle program (described asdriving trucks in circles), the Space Station (a $150 billion programwith no purpose), the Mars Direct proposal, and the ConstellationProgram (started by George W, cancelled under Obama), are each givenattention and insight. Perhaps it's all best described by Jim Lovellwho states the Russians are the tortoise in the race, while the U.S.simply gave up.

Very few events match the breathtaking majesty of a rocket lift-off.The beauty and power of this engineering marvel generate the wondermentof exploration and discovery. Sadly, most of the triumphs and tragediesof the U.S. space program are little more than entries in a textbook(or website) for today's kids. The program lacks leadership and vision,and the case can be made that the only hope is with the private sector(such as Elon Musk). The final 10-12 minutes of the film is really apep talk (Sales pitch? Propaganda?) for an actual scientific spaceprogram. This time, let's hope that rather than political reasons, wego because it's there!

Meh = expressing a lack of interest or enthusiasm, uninspiring, unexceptional.

meh, as soon as they did the Democrat Blame Game of blaming the WRONG persons, places, events, things for the cancellation of Funds ("U.S. Congress holds the purse strings", not the U.S. President) of the Saturn V, that was actually "over engineered" by German Werner Von Braun to go to Mars. U.S. Laws reflect what Democrats of U.S. Congress did, 1973 War Powers Resolution (U.S. Senate), 1973 War Powers Act (U.S. House of Representatives) eliminated the U.S. President's U.S. Constitution's War Powers. Then Democrats of U.S. Congress (another 1973 Democrat U.S. Law) Cut all Funding of the Democrats (Democrat President John Kennedy) Demanded Save the Democracy of the REPUBLIC of South Vietnam War, while U.S. Military were still at the Republic of South Vietnam, Republican President Nixon still had a Democrat President Kennedy U.S. Alliance Agreement Requiring U.S. Military and Financial Support of the Republic of South Vietnam, the Money had to come from somewhere, and there was NASA, this would not have happened if Democrats of U.S. Congress had not cut funding of the Democrats Save the Democracy of the Republic of South Vietnam War. Documented Reason why the Democrats of U.S. Congress cut the Budget, Republican President Nixon, 1973 made the Selective Service aka "Draft" Fair and Equal (Randomized, regardless of Social Class, Political Party) instead of as directed by the previous Racist Democrat Presidents "Select Only the Economically Disadvantaged (the Racist Democrats Politically Correct name for Negros)" while most Democrats, their Sons were Deferred by Democrat Deferments from the Selective Service aka "Draft" like Democrat Vice President Biden (6 Democrat Deferments), Democrat President (Draft Dodger) W. Clinton.

Doctor Tyson, my advise, "You can't argue with Stupid". My interest in Space, Science started during the early 1960s, visited Florida, Cape Canaveral (long before Apollo). Decades later, School at Huntsville Alabama, Redstone Arsenal Alabama, home of the Marshall Space Flight Center.

The actual first step, is NOT Missile Motors, Missiles, Reusable Missiles (Space X), but a Scientist Arthur C. Clarke Space Elevator, the space end anchored to a space station. The Space Station size and capabilities increased, till that Space Station is halfway between Earth and Moon, see NASA Research pertaining to Space Station of 2001 A Space Odyssey. Nearby (not too close, safe explosive distance) is a Spacecraft Shipyard, build and repair real Inter Planetary Inter Galactic Spacecraft, first materials provided by Earth, later materials provided by building a Space Manufacturing Capability (Solar Forges, Metal Refineries, Metal Fabrication, Multi Directional Molecular Materials, zero gravity materials, Recycling) including long range Tugs of Asteroid Mining, and "catching" catapulted materials from the Underground Moon Bases (Moon's Commercial Mining Corporations). The Space Tugs also gather up all those thousand of dangerous objects in orbit around the Earth to be recycled.
