Who's Out There - 1975

Renowned actor, writer, and director Orson Welles — with contributions from scientists George Wald, Carl Sagan, and others — examines the possibility and implications of extraterrestrial life. In examining our perceptions of alien 'martians' from his "War of the Worlds" broadcast, to then-modern explorations of Mars, this film from NASA provides a unique glimpse at life on earth, and elsewhere in the universe.Transcript (PDF): http://archives.gov/social-media/transcripts/transcript-whos-out-there-649442.pdfCREATED BYNational Aeronautics and Space Administration.
