This interview was conducted in 1999 by T. Patrick Murray. In this interview Stanley Kubrick of 2001 Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut fame states he was approached by Richard Nixon to create a video of a moon landing when in actuality it was impossible to go more than 1,000 miles from the earth due to the Van Allen Belt that surround the earth’s atmosphere. While technology has overcome some of the difficulties presented by the Van Allen Belt, in 1969 it was virtually impossible to go beyond the limit imposed by this radiation belt. Kubrick required that this interview not be published until 15 years after his death. Ironically, Kubrick died just days after he gave this interview.
I must warn you that the interviewer, Murray comes across as somewhat unprofessional in his questioning and demeanor, nonetheless, the content of the interview cannot be denied.
