When the Space Shuttle landed for the last time, many Americans thought NASA was closed for good. Nothing could be further from the truth. Right now, men and women from the space program are designing and building next generation space vehicles to go to new destinations in space, farther than we’ve ever gone before.

NASA recently made an inspiring new online video narrated by Mr. Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime (see above), to show the progress being made on these new systems, but the agency is barred by law from buying advertising time for such a spot.

Today we’re running a crowdfunding campaign to edit this video into a 30 second spot, and place it in over 50 movie theaters around the country, starting with the premier of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ By backing this 30 second trailer in the top movie theater markets around the United States, you can show our students and young people that we’re in an exciting new era of space exploration. Now is the time to reach them – to remind them that an inspiring space program awaits, one that is worthy of their ambition.

The Plan

* When we reach our funding goal, the “We are the Explorers” video will be reimagined to fit a 30 second advertising slot in major movie markets, including but not limited to, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, DC.

* The advertisement will run in over 50 movie theaters for 8 weeks, starting with the premier of “Star Trek Into Darkness” on May 17th.

* This is a direct ad-buy. If we reach our goal, we’re in.

* If we go beyond our fundraing goal, the additional funds will be used to purchase time at more theaters around the country.

* Note, by donating you acknowledge that donations are not tax deductible.
