    "FTL" by Adam Stern

    A lone astronaut testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft travels farther than he imagined possible.

    Ethan Kane, a NASA Astronaut and decorated pilot, has recently retired from active duty to spend more time with his wife and young son. As he tries to adjust to a quieter life on the ground, he’s approached to fly one last mission...testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft. While the world watches, Kane takes The Longshot on its maiden voyage.

    ....It would be easier to fool people if NASA and its offshoot Space X have this kind of CGI.

    I'm so glad they made this video sci-fi. Traveling to Mars is impossible, mars does not have a terrain, it is a wondering star, perhaps a ball of gases that light up kinda like a neon sign. Earth is a horizontal plane. It is enclosed by the firmament dome. Perhaps there is a space, on the outside of the firmament above the waters, but the only way we will ever find out is when the government= mindcontrollers quit lying to us & let people go to the ice wall ring that the firmament spins on, to see if there is an exit to the water outside & to see if we can get to the top of the water on the outside of the firmament.

    So, the ship has a malfunction and somehow ends up in some magical realm occupied by space fairies. The fairies bring the man home to his family. They live happily ever after. The End. Bloody nonsense.

    This does more in 14 minutes than most sci-fi films do in 2 hours.

    Moral of the story... Do NOT take Starfleet Captain commands lightly.
