Film

Searching for Skylab - America's Forgotten Triumph is a 2019 documentary about the 1970s American space station Skylab. It was written by Carl Alessi and directed by Dwight Steven-Boniecki and partly crowdfunded.[1][2]

Searching for Skylab was created to bring attention to the important role Skylab played in the development of human spaceflight programs. On Skylab, Steven-Boniecki said "hundreds of hours of video and audio recordings exist from it, yet it is unlikely that you've seen or heard much of it."[3] The creators hoped to release the film in time for the 45th anniversary of the initial launch of Skylab, but lacked sufficient funds to complete it before May 2018. A Kickstarter campaign was used to raise an additional $20,000 dollars to complete the project.[3]

A preview of Searching for Skylab was screened at the Swiss Space Museum in November 2018.[4] The film premiered at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, on February 8, 2019, with Skylab astronauts Jack Lousma (Skylab 3) and Ed Gibson (Skylab 4) in attendance.[5] The movie was released online in March 2019 and is available on video on demand.[6]

Searching for Skylab has been praised by writers for various spaceflight enthusiast communities. Emily Carney, a writer for the National Space Society, wrote that the film was a "treasure trove of as-yet-unseen archival footage" and that the film helped dispel long held myths about the Skylab space station.[7] A writer for Spaceflight Insider also praised the film saying "If you never flew into space yourself and you’d like to experience what it takes to be an astronaut, you ought to find out watching the film. It’s absolutely thrilling".[8]
