SPACE: THE LONGEST GOODBYE – Interview with Filmmaker Ido Mizrahy and Former Astronaut Cady Coleman

Filmmaker Ido Mizrahy and former astronaut (and Selig Film favorite!) Cady Coleman joined our Gadi Elkon for a chat about SPACE: THE LONGEST GOODBYE.

NASA’s goal to send astronauts on grueling journey to Mars. Mars would require a three-year absence from Earth, during which communication in real time would be impossible. Meet the psychologists whose job is to keep astronauts mentally stable in outer space, as they are caught between their dream of reaching new frontiers and the basic human need to stay connected to home.

Ido and Cady talked with Gadi about NASA’s future manned missions to MARS and how psychology is an important element to astronauts’ safety and success.  Ido and Cady talk about how this film came about and what the future of space travel will entail.

Here is our interview with filmmaker Ido Mizrahy and former Astronaut Cady Coleman.


The documentary debuts on PBS’s Independent Lens on Monday, May 6th at 10 p.m. ET (check local listings).

After, the film be available to stream on the PBS App and also accessible via PBS’s flagship YouTube channel.
