Offworld: Ad Astra Review

We review the new science fiction space film Ad Astra! Ariel and Norm are joined by Dr. Douglas Vakoch, the President of METI (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to discuss the film’s portrayal of space travel through the solar system, astronaut psychology, and what commercial spaceflight could look like in the near future. Spoiler warning: we discuss many plot details about the film beyond what is shown in the trailers!

  1. Are we going to gloss over the whole physics thing? Astronauts in freefall during thrust? exploding baboons in a vacuum? and who would bring a baboon on a space ship? and don’t get me started on the moon buggies, not the most economical way to travel across the surface of the moon, a slingshot, and some ballistics calculation would easily do the trick.

    This movie is definitely not for the pickers of nits.
