Color-This collection of short films will have you wondering about life on other planets. The Roswell Report- The famous Roswell incident of 1947 is examined closely. Initially, it was reported that a UFO crashed in the New Mexico desert, but soon the story changed (or was it covered up?). Was it a weather balloon, an alien spacecraft, a top secret government experiment, or something else? And what about the alien bodies that were supposedly recovered, what were they really?? Who's Out There?- The great Orson Welles recounts his famous War of The Worlds radio broadcast that created panic when listeners thought they were being invaded by martians. He then speculates on the real possibility of life on Mars or other planets. The Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence-The SETI program, which searches the skies for signals or radio waves from other planets is shown. If a signal is found coming from a distant world, how would we react, could we understand it, and would we respond? Destination Mars- This film set in 2018 gives a realistic vision of a 2 year manned mission to the red planet. A team of skilled astronauts deal with the challenges of weightlessness, confined spaces, freezing temperatures, solar radiation, and more on this important human odyssey.

This collection of roughly 30 minute films takes a critical approach, not a sensational approach, to to possibility of life on other planets and whether we were visited during the famous Roswell incident of 1947. The SETI program is looked at, this is a NASA program of listening for signals from outer space using sophisticated dish receivers pointed at various parts of the sky. "Who's Out There"-is narrated by the great Orson Welles as he muses about the real possibilities of life on other planets. Carl Sagan can also be seen as he gives his views on the "billions and billions" of planets.The most polished film is the last one, "Destination Mars" which gives a true scientific vision of what a manned Mars program would look like in the year 2018. It's nicely done and good science for anyone who wonders what's out there.
