Offering rare inside access to NASA and SpaceX, this is the thrilling story of the nearly 20 year journey to send American astronauts back to space aboard U.S. rockets, from filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin.

Return to Space

Review

A decent documentary about modern privatised space travel. Focusing on the first launch carrying astronauts from American soil in decades.

The journey follows SpaceX from humble beginnings to crew resupplying the International Space Station. There are setbacks then successes but worries turn to past disasters like Challenger and Columbia.

The movie does well to cover the entire history of the space era, from NASAs success, the moon landing and shuttle program, to their stagnation and reliance on the private sector.

There is also a story of family that is often overlooked, with both astronauts having loved ones fearful for their safe return.
