The adults are great, the kids are hard to watch
27 September 2018 | by tony-148See all my reviews

This film lays out the history of plans for human exploration of mars very well, especially Warner von Braun's involvement. However the brief interviews with kids attending space camp or hard to watch, while I appreciate their passion , That passion quickly turns to overconfidence, needlessly peppering their speech with technical jargon. That passion comes off more as cosplay unfortunately
