Saturday we were glued to our tablets watching the SpaceX Dragon launch from Port Canaveral. Then we tuned in Sunday to see the docking with the International Space Station. What a cool historic moment. This was definitely one of the times I wish we had TV feed because to see that on a 75 inch screen would have been amazing. One day it would be great if we could actually go see a launch.
For now, we will settle on news videos and movies. Doug and I both like most space themed movies and we own a few. I wondered if any like minded folks had suggestions. For starters I'm asking my bookish friend Katherine from I Wish I Lived in a Library as we share that interest.
Here are some of our picks. We like the true stories depicted on screen from The Dish and Hidden Figures.
First Man was very good and I thought Ryan Gosling did an excellent job portraying Neil Armstrong. The Apollo 11 movie included actual footage from the launch and moon landing. Apollo 13 is one we haven't watched in a while but probably will this month.
Then we have some movies with visually stunning effects and entertaining as well.
We also have the Firefly series and The Martian....love the Martian!
I can think of others with space themes we've watched such as Space Cowboys, The Right Stuff, Ad Astra (wasn't crazy about that one) and Gravity.
Please leave us suggestions if I haven't mentioned a movie you like or could recommend. Have you seen any of the above?
