A Man Desperate to Get to Mars Runs Afoul of the Space TSA

In the animated short “The 4th Planet,” a man is desperate to get onto a spaceship headed for Mars, but he meets with some resistance.


From his run, we get a look at a shiny departure terminal contrasted with the sorry state of Earth, giving us a bit of a clue as to why this guy’s so desperate.

Also: keep an eye-out for the Star Trek shout-out.
