As the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing this year, Above and Beyond shines a spotlight on the historic institution which took us to the moon, to the surface of Mars and to the outer edge of our solar system and beyond. The film celebrates past accomplishments and investigates future initiatives while exploring 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, this film examines the extraordinary ways NASA has changed not only our vision of the universe, but also our planet and ourselves.
