I can’t tell if I love this or hate it.  Hit the jump for my thoughts and two inaccuracy I noticed in the video:

First up are the falsehoods:

1) “The Space Program ended in October [2011] with the closure of the Shuttle program.”  Why does everyone keep saying that?!?  NASA has about 100 current missions running simultaneously, including the ISS.  Did people forget we still maintain a home in the sky like a FRIGGIN GOD?!?  That doesn’t sound like “ending” to me.

2) “Not even NASA has a free standing LEM like this besides the ones on the moon.”  False.  Of course NASA still has a few LEM’s lying around.  I know for a fact you can see one on display at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in DC.  It’s a fully flight capable LEM left over from a cancelled Apollo mission.  I’ve seen it.  It’s amazing.

With that in mind I wonder what other stuff they screwed up, but in the end I think it looks great with a ton of smart and funny little touches.  For instance, packing the LEM with liquor and cigarettes for the long journey was a stroke of genius.  It’s reassuring to see other passionate art nerds spreading the word on the importance of space exploration.  I’d love to see more over-the-top-space-inspired work come to light.
