The problem? He had no formal training, college education, or money. Though what he lacked in means he more than made up for in sheer determination. At the height of the Cold War, Nick managed to convince the US Army, investors, and engineers that he was the man for the job, and launched the first civilian space program. Insightful, and lively use of archival footage paired with stunning space photography brings us into the world of this unique underdog. Nick is a true larger-than-life figure who with his movie-star looks, loving family, and strong vision is a real inspiration. In interviews with friends and family he is remembered fondly, and clearly admired by many. Director Jeff Tremaine pieces together a remarkable portrait of Nick, cementing his place in history.
