The Mars Movie Night Series presents:
WALT DISNEY'S WONDERFUL WORLD OF COLOR: MARS AND BEYOND
(1957 Season 4 Episode 12)
Before man ventured into space, Walt Disney took the nation there. One of three 53-minute segments on space travel dealing with space flight and going to the Moon and Mars. A combination of lecture (by the tops in the field, including Dr. Werner von Braun), animation, live-action segments and models, as they effortlessly teach such elements as why rockets are in stages, what is gravitational force, orbiting, air pressure, and even the psychological effects on the mind. The wonder of a most poetic survey about what life might be like on Mars illustrates Disney animated magic at its best.
THE MARS UNDERGROUND (2007/2012)
A landmark documentary about renowned aerospace scientist and visionary, Dr. Robert Zubrin, and his struggle to get the first human mission to Mars off the ground. Updated in 2012.
Showtime is at 7:00pm at Studio 106.
Please RSVP (to filmist at mac dot com) as seating is limited. We'll provide the popcorn -- you can bring drinks or snacks to share.
