The First Science Fiction Movie Filmed in Space

Video game entrepreneur Richard Garriott took a camera with him during his recent stay on the International Space Station. He and the astronauts put it to good use by filming a short movie called Apogee of Fear. In this gripping story, the inhabitants of the ISS discover that too much oxygen is being consumed to account for their number. There must be someone else -- or something else -- on board!

Watch a recording of a performance of Apogee of Fear at the link. Crow and Tom Servo aren't in it, but Garriott can probably sign them for the sequel.

Love me some Lord British... but that premise may have been borrowed from Alex Garland's screenplay for Sunshine. Anyhoo... Still cool to see one of my childhood idols in zero gravity :)
