Event description
Australian Premiere of the documentary film ‘Searching for Skylab’ as part of the Skylab 40th Anniversary Community Program in Esperance

About this Event

The Searching for Skylab film is a treasure trove of as-yet-unseen archival footage of Skylab with commentary from its astronauts, workers, major players, and experts. Director Dwight Steven-Boniecki’s film also serves to demolish some commonly held myths about Skylab, which have persisted for 45-plus years.

This year marks the 40th year of Skylab’s descent back to Earth and its impact on the Esperance region. Skylab was America’s first space station and the world’s first big space station. It was orbiting unmanned for just over five years before it returned to Earth breaking up and scattering debris across the Esperance region in 1979. Skylab crashing back to Earth is one of our most memorable events for our community that has a significant international connection.

The Australian Premiere of this film is part of the Skylab 40th Anniversary Community Program being hosted by the Esperance Museum at the Esperance Civic Centre.

This is a FREE event. Tickets are Limited. One screening only.

This event includes the screening of the ‘Interview with an Astronaut Competition’.

Doors will open at 5:30pm.
