They are going to make feature films in space. But this idea is nothing new. Let's take a look..

    OKGo's Upside & Down Inside Out music video is probably the best video that demonstrates zero g. Watch the behind the scenes video also to see how they did it, shows some real planning! I love showing it in my physics classes when I teach gravity and orbital mechanics.

    My husband and I sometimes dreamt of "what if Startreck Voyager passed by and you got the chance to come on board for a long journey into the unknown (possibly to never return to earth)" … and we ask each other if we'd say yes? Both of us would go for sure … hope you make it Fran!

    Space will become a mundane place to go once one of the cheap ways to get there is implemented. The optimal one at the moment is probably a system of momentum transfer tethers, which could be reached by a vehicle comparable to Spaceship One. That's still going to be expensive per kilo compared to something like orbital rings, but we're going to need to get some serious space industry going to justify orbital rings. Those things are bloody expensive to build. (It's like building a railway. A railway is the cheapest transport possible over land, but you need quite a lot that needs transporting before it's worth the cost to build.)

    National Geographic put together at least one documentary on the US space program entirely from film shot in space. At the end is a short title card that states: Filmed entirely on location by employees of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

    "I wonder if I'm going to live long enough for space to be boring, like space is just another place like … DETROIT…"

    HAH! I sure hope not. I think it will be a place to visit like the poles, deep sea, etc… It will never be boring because of how much energy and investment it requires to actually get there – even if they reduce the cost over time it will still always be at least an order of magnitude greater than the cost of visiting somewhere on Earth. I don't think it will ever be as cheap as flying to a destination on land. I could see boring I guess, but that's what space amusement parks are for!

    The word you were looking for is buoyancy – your clothes float, your hair floats, your equipmant floats and your gravity-trained muscles continue to do what they do, leaving you hunched up.

    Space itself IS boring – there's nothing there and no atmosphere. Going INTO space, on the other hand is still exciting. Long may it remain so.

    Finally, I hate the idea of all of those old film sets laying about, cluttering up the L4 backlot.

    Yeah, considering that 2001 was envisioning that space would be boring by… well… 2001… as noone in the film actually looks through the windows with Spielbergian awe and wonder.

    We really have a lot to catch up to.

    By now, 2021… A trip to the moon really should be like crossing the Atlantic. At one point, it was a lifechanging experience and national news worthy. Now it elicits only a shrug from people who hear of it.

    Love the honey monster pose "tell 'em about the honey mummy"..
    Can't see why you wouldn't be a crucial consultant on a floaty film.
    I think I'm going to listen to Kate Bush's Rocketman
    **Edit no chance,can't get Kate's version – Fran, any chance that you could do a cover, please?
