“Zubrin really, nearly alone, changed our thinking on this issue…”
– Carl Sagan
The Mars Underground is a landmark documentary about renowned aerospace scientist and visionary, Dr. Robert Zubrin, and his struggle to get the first human mission to Mars off the ground.
Shot entirely in breathtaking high definition (HD) and directed by accomplished documentarian, Scott J. Gill (Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, The Blood Earth), this film brings to life Dr. Zubrin’s vision, known as ‘Mars Direct,’, through startling 3-D CGI animation of the launch, voyage and landing of spacecraft, as well as glimpses into the future of man’s reign on Mars.
Through Dr. Zubrin’s compelling words, moody cinematic visuals and lush original score, The Mars Underground is a surreal journey from the glory of the 1960s Space Race, the decline of NASA in the 1980s and 1990s, through the faltering moon and Mars programs of today, and into one man’s quest to propel humanity towards a new world.
