Description of Film - Why Pursue Space?
Why Pursue Space - Pilot Version
Zarya Productions presents a documentary that encapsulates the thoughts and views of individuals
from across Canada on the rationale for Canadian space activities. First presented at CAISU's
biennial conference, the National Space Awareness Workshop in November of 2006, the film showed
students and space professionals alike what Canadians say when asked key questions about their
knowledge of space activities in Canada, our Space Programme, and the underlying question of
the need for Canada's leadership to the world for human and robotic space exploration.
The film presents The People's concerns and aspirations, and how we should approach this new era.
Filmed in both English and French in the Extended version.
