The First Fiction Film Made In Space!

In 2008, video game entrepreneur Richard Garriott spent $US 30 million on his own personal trip to the International Space Station and brought along a video camera, which he used to chronicle his experience in his forthcoming documentary Man On a Mission. He also took a bit of time to shoot a short comedy film called Apogee of Fear, and in doing so created the first fiction film ever shot in space. Nasa initially censored its release, but after some outcry they relented and are working with Garriott to release the film in an official form. This bootleg from Dragoncon 2011 isn’t the best quality, but it will give you the jist of the short. What could be stealing the oxygen on the space station?! Hint: it’s not an alien.
