Video: Going to space in real life is a lot of work, so let’s just take a journey with this compilation of movie scenes from A Trip to the Moon (1902) to The Martian (2015) and all the classics in between like Alien (1979), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and Solaris (1972).
Going to space in movies is usually a bad idea because you either get left behind, which means you’re screwed, or run into some alien who wants to rip your face off, which means you’re screwed. This supercut puts together some good parts (take offs, fun in zero gravity) and bad parts (annoying space turbulence, exploding spaceship problems). The scenes, cut closely together, really show just have far movies have come. It ends with the best part: Coming back home.
