If you're like me, the voice of Paul Freas is what you think of when you hear the word 'authoritative'. His resounding tones speak of factuality, and thus you trust him. It may have something to do with his work on The Haunted Mansion in Disneyland.
Here, we're presented with SCIENCE!!! Specifically, we're talkin' satellites. Say what you will about Walt Disney, but he was dedicated to producing science content, and a big part of the explosion in interest in space was due to his documentaries, which were advised by the legendary Werner von Braun.
The film uses a wonderful formula - introduce with file footage, go to a comedic animated section, then speculative and informational stuff. It's gorgeous, of course, and Ward Kimbal's influence is all over the animation.
