The Astronaut Farmer

The Astronaut Farmer (2006)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: Bruce Willis plays Colonel Masterson and in the credits Bruce is not mentioned at all nor the character he plays.



Correction: Actors sometimes choose not to be credited, particularly in cases where an actor who would normally play lead roles is playing a relatively minor role. This is by choice and thus is not a mistake.

In an interview before his first launch attempt, Charles explains that his flight plan is to make exactly one orbit of Earth, returning from orbit directly to the launch point, his farm in Texas. Launching from that latitude would necessarily incline the orbital plane to the equator, and Earth would rotate beneath the spacecraft's groundtrack during the roughly hour and a half period of the orbit. The craft would then land, not at the farm, but several hundred miles to the west.
