Richard Garriot: Man on A Mission
Last year Richard Garriott became the first son of an astronaut to go to space, but this is no millionaire's joy ride, he pioneered private space travel to make his dream come true: from his training in Russia to his launch in Kazakhstan to the dramatic, never before seen footage inside the capsule during fiery re-entry, this is a historic moment in human space travel.

In January of 2008, Richard writes a $30 million check to secure his seat on the Russian Soyuz rocket. In October, he launches 250 miles straight up to the International Space Station where he orbits Earth for 10 days. The film follows Richard through his year of training. From Star City, Moscow, to NASA, to Yuri Gagarin's original launch pad – viewers are Richard's co-pilot in his journey to the stars.

Once in space, Richard takes over the filming. He and his camera float weightless inside the tiny Soyuz capsule for the two days it takes to dock with the ISS. Then we experience life on board the Space Station as Richard performs experiments, looks down on mother Earth and even does magic tricks. What's more, Richard keeps the camera rolling for some never before seen footage from inside the re-entry capsule as it makes a fiery return to earth. On the ground, his astronaut father is there to meet him, officially welcoming us all to the next generation of human space exploration.
