It only takes one rocket to start an interplanetary revolution.
This animated adaptation of Justina Ireland’s story “A Theory of Flight” imagines a future in which one woman recognizes the barriers in getting to space, and takes the issue into her own hand with an open-sourced rocket and kickstarts a revolution to open up the skies to everyone.
