Man Conquers Space

Via Bad Astronomy Blog:

The film Man Conquers Space looks like a documentary made today, and is peppered with archival footage from the dawn of the space age during WWII, through to today, narrated by the people who were there – the engineers, the astronauts, the scientists, the visionaries, the politicians. This film is based on an alternative timeline to the Mercury-Gemini-Apollo era of reality – it is based on the premise that all that had been proposed in the early 1950′s actually came to pass – and sooner than they expected.

Some of the video footage on the site is very pretty, and it makes me a little sad that things like this seem so distant and implausible in reality.
