'Fight for Space' will probe why and how the space program came adrift, and will examine future plans from NASA and other commercial endeavors including SpaceX, Sierra Nevada, Planetary Resources, Mars One, and others. The goal of this film is to present the arguments for and against, on why a robust and ambitious space program is good for the country and the world, by showing them the benefits that such a program would bring.
