Worst Space Billionaire Plot? Offworld episode 4: Moonraker (1979)
Space-minded billionaires like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are in the news today, but one of the first space billionaires appeared in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker. Ariel is joined by author Bonnie Burton and science correspondent Emily Calandrelli to talk about pop culture’s stylized take on space travel in the late 70s, in the wake of Star Wars and the dawn of NASA’s Shuttle program.
