Watch Richard Garriott — better known in the gaming world as the Godfather to the gaming world, "Lord British" and the son of astronaut Owen K. Garriott — achieve his space dreams in this documentary about one (very rich) man's journey into the big black.


Garriott documented the long process of trying to finance his space tourism in this documentary, officially titled Man on A Mission.

Firmly ensconced in the geeky pantheon of computer legends since high school, Richard Garriott can afford to pursue his dreams – even the wildly improbable ones. For instance, following in his astronaut father's footsteps. NASA won't take you because of bad eyes? No problem! Pioneer your own private space industry and buy a $30 million seat on a Russian Soyuz. Richly funny and invigorating, Man on a Mission tags along with Richard on his years-long quest to be the second Garriott into space. And maybe come back.


Man on A Mission is getting a limited theater release this January.
