Voice of Carl Sagan Stars in Short Film on Humanity's Potential in Space

The voice of the late Carl Sagan echoes through a new video produced by Space City Films.

The new video, entitled "Humans Explore: We Are Capable of Greatness," is sharply focused on the recent NASA test of the Orion capsule, which launched on a successful unmanned test flight on Dec. 5.

According to Marc Havican of Space City Films: "I wanted to share the kickoff film with you before we release it for Christmas. This first installment is a tribute to Orion and EFT-1, and to the impact that human space exploration has had on humanity."

As noted by the company, "Humans Explore" will be a series of short films and live experiences that they are producing in-house and will be distributing through a dedicated website and various digital outlets.
