This Is What It’s Like to Be a Space Rocket Launcher in Alaska
Fishing boats. Rocket launches. Workers at a world-class spaceport complex in the unlikeliest of locales: Kodiak Island, Alaska. After a massive explosion risks shutting the spaceport down for good, they must push through the uncertainty of losing their jobs and stay focused on the complex mission of pulling together to launch a new rocket into orbit.
The documentary tells the story of the blue-collar and high technology employees who make space exploration possible. The rockets are the stars of the show, and the staff is the supporting cast who make the unreachable a reality.
