Movies about space always spark my imagination, the idea of traversing the unknown, the notion of leaving the relative safety of my home, and being in an environment filled with the building blocks of life.

With that in mind, I have decided to put together a list of Space movies that always spark my imagination and leave me wanting more. The criteria for this list is simple, movies that have to do with space that have a realistic feel to them, they need to be based on some sort of science (Even if it’s impossible)

The Martian (2015)

Interstellar (2014)

Apollo 13 (1995)

2001: A Spacetime Odyssey

Contact (1997)

The Right Stuff (1983)

Gravity (2013)
