NASA is taking a jump from science fact into the realm of science fiction through a trailer which will be shown in theatres across the US in connection with the new Star Trek film, Star Trek: Into the Darkness.
NASA’s trailer is called ‘We are the Explorers’ and it showcases the space agency’s history and the latest developments in spacecraft technology.
The trailer is going to be 30 seconds long – it’s based on a video NASA released last year.
Although the footage comes from NASA, the trailer is actually the brainchild of the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) of America, and the money for it has come through crowdfunding. It took AIA just five days to raise the $33,000 needed.
So now there’s even more reason to be excited about the new Star Trek movie!
Here’s the clip released by NASA last year:
