Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey to Tomorrow

September 2018 - October 2018

As NASA celebrates its 60th anniversary, Discovery once again shines a spotlight on the historic institution taking us to the moon, to the surface of Mars, to the outer edge of our solar system and beyond. But more than a moving portrait of NASA’s many accomplishments in space, ABOVE AND BEYOND also sheds light on the agency’s lesser-known area of focus— the vital role NASA has played in measuring the health of our home planet. Directed, produced, and narrated by Academy Award®-nominated and Emmy®-winning Rory Kennedy (“Last Days of Vietnam,”) the film examines the extraordinary ways NASA has changed not only our vision of the universe, but also our planet, and ourselves.
