skylab's Epic saga on Film
50 years in the making!

Dwight Steven-Boniecki Film Director

Welcome, fellow lover of space exploration! I'm stoked that you found this page!

Welcome, fellow lover of space! I'm stoked that you're here!

You may wonder what new insights you’ll discover here? 
Let me tell you: I poured 10+ years of my life and all my life's savings into bringing the amazing story of Skylab to you. First, in a book, then as restored NASA documents and finally in a movie. To this day it’s the first and only feature film ever made about Skylab! 

But why would I do all that? Because out of all NASA programmes, Skylab took my breath away and it keeps me in awe 15+ years into my research. How come? Let me ask you this:

Did you know we almost lost NASA itself due to problems at the launch of this space station?

Did you know that Skylab was the bold first step laying the groundwork for flying humans to Mars?

• Did you know that to this day, Skylab is the largest and heaviest object ever placed in a stable orbit?

• Did you know that thanks to Skylab, we learned more about the Sun than in the entire history of human kind until then?

• Did you know that on Skylab humans observed a comet from outer space for the very first time ever?

I could go on and on, even beyond the station’s crash into Australia, which incredibly is also viewed as a great scientific success.

No, it was not possible to include everything Skylab taught us in one 98-minute long movie, but this film is packed with meticulously researched & restored, rarest archival material that lay hidden in the dark for half a century.

You get to see it now for the first time since 1974. But don't take my word for it. Join the ranks of those who dare to dream big and hear the stories straight from the legends who crafted a chapter in history so bright that it's igniting again 50 years on.

“Long Overdue:This is an extremely well done documentary. Skylab is truly one of the easiest forgotten parts of America's Space Program, as it grew out of the Apollo Moon Missions, but was invaluable in obtaining information the U.S. needed to conduct future long-term spaceflight. Thank You for bringing this into the light of day!!”
Steven J.

“I purchased the film and enjoyed it tremendously at first glance. Have to look it a few more times to grasp all the new details. Very well done. I also agree that the archival material comes out much more when the modern interviews are monochrome.”
Dietrich Haeseler

“Really good documentary :) Did not know that Benjamin and Carianne were part of this project, nice that TMRO crew did their part.”
Josef Habdank

“An excellent documentary on US early Space Station. Never before HD video of Launch, Station and Astronauts in in zero g performing medical experiments. Skylab eventually end in western Australia! This documentary fills a huge gap from Apollo to the beginning of the Shuttle."
