Space Station Five: Films about space stations and films on the International Space Station July 9, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I was thinking the other day what films depicted the ISS, well, there’s three instances on this list, and presumably many more. Mir too gets quite a look in – immediately placing films in their time.
I still think Space Station Five from 2001 is one of the best, not least because it has an unfinished quality to it. Of course, massively – overly – ambitious that it would have been lofted into orbit (or constructed there) by 2001. But… hey.
Meanwhile, on the actual ISS what do they watch? And how do they watch it?
Odd to see Gravity on the list, as the linked article notes. Not a film I’d want to watch in orbit.
And I think I’ve mentioned this before, one has to presume this song was a tribute to…er… Space Station 5 too.
