[ARCHIVED] Feature Film: Moon in Goddard Planetarium


Award-winning British sci-fi thriller "Moon" to be shown in Goddard Planetarium today at 1:30 pm. This will be the last program presented before the planetarium closes for renovation.  For three years, Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) has dutifully harvested Helium 3 for Lunar, a company that claims to hold the key to solving humankind’s energy crisis. As Sam’s contract comes to an end, the lonely astronaut looks forward to returning to Earth. But when a routine extraction goes horribly awry, it becomes apparent that Lunar hasn’t been entirely straightforward with him. This critically-acclaimed film won praise for its scientific realism and was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best British Film. Moon was inspired by actual NASA mining research and was screened as part of a lecture series at NASA’s Space Center Houston. (2009, 97 min, rated R for language. Support provided by the RMAC Foundation.) The planetarium may be accessed from 11th Street on the northwest corner of the Museum or through the Museum's main entrance.
