How far can the visual language of science fiction be broken down while maintaining a distinct air of the future or other worlds?  By relying on the same visual disassociation that sci-fi filmmakers used to create their own worlds common or obvious props become moons, nebula, or alien ephemera.  By combining those techniques with scenes that are akin to actual imagery from our brief time in time space the illusion is solidified enough that at first glance it holds.  Past that glance the illusion collapses frustrating the viewer.  The fragility of the nascent space program and tension between exploration and economics holds us grounded to our current tedious reality.  For now all of this remains a fiction but with a desire for it be more real.
