Star Men

When: Mon., Sept. 19, 7-9 p.m. 2016

The great space race of the '60s was more than just a competition to see who could build the bigger rocket. The whole decade saw incredible strides in astronomy, as well as all branches of scientific study, which shaped our understanding of the universe and influenced generations. Tonight's free indie film at Ivywild, hosted by the Independent Film Society of Colorado, is a heartfelt reminder of how far we've come since then and how far we still have to go. Star Men follows four of the scientists who worked on the moon landing and related projects, Donald Lynden-Bell, Wal Sargent, Nick Woolf and Roger Griffin, as they reunite for a final road trip across Southern California, where they made their greatest discoveries 50 years ago. These men have a unique perspective on the world, having spent most of their lives studying the stars, and they remind us that our place in the universe is small, but significant. 7-9 p.m., Ivywild School, 1604 S. Cascade Ave., free, facebook.com/IFSOC. — Alissa Smith
