Man on a mission (Richard Garriott's road to the stars)
Firmly ensconced in the geeky pantheon of computer legends since high school, Richard Garriott can afford to pursue his dreams, even the wildly improbable ones. For instance, following in his astronaut father's footsteps. So, if NASA won't take him because of bad eyes, he will pioneer his own private space industry and buy a $30 million seat on a Russian Soyuz. Tag along with Richard on his years-long quest to be the second Garriott into space. And maybe come back.
Special features: Apogee of fear; After touchdown; Richard's 30-year space plan; Magic time; Post-game wrap-up, Ride the Boran, Conservation laws in zero G.
Outstanding! This is a wonderfully informative documentary of an independent and private journey into space. Richard did very well designing computer games and investing in space transport and development projects. This documentary demonstrates how one man led the curve to provide access to space by private citizens. ~Mike
