Theme

In November of 2012, astronaut Scott Kelly, along with Mikhail Korniyenko, began a yearlong mission on the international space station. "Weightless" seeks to give perspective to what it must have been like for these astronauts during that year they spent in space. This production encourages self-reflection and empathy from its viewers. You may have seen this show in the 2019 catalogue. It has since been shortened, updated and improved! We hope you like the new and improved version of “Weightless”! 

Editor's Note: We are recording new Voiceovers this week that are less boomy and will upload the the new audio shortly!
