LAS VEGAS — A few hours before the Oscars, the Oscar-winning star of the Oscar winning film “Space: Above and Beyond” opened his keynote address at the 2016 International Astronautical Congress in Paris.
The ceremony, titled “Space, Imagination and Humanity,” was meant to be a celebration of science and exploration, and not a celebration for the space race, said Matt Damon, whose role as space pilot Rick Deckard in the film was immortalized in the 2014 movie “The Martian.”
But the ceremony turned out to be an opportunity for Damon to reflect on the legacy of his first film, and the impact of its success on the genre.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to think about my role in it, because it’s such an iconic moment in history, and a lot of people remember it in some way, shape or form, and they’ve always said that I did the most important thing for the genre,” he said.
“Space” is the story of a young astronaut, Rick Decker, who finds himself stranded on a planet where the planet’s population is dying.
When a space ship crashes on the planet, he and his fellow crew members discover a hidden world populated by aliens, who soon become obsessed with finding Earth.
After traveling to Earth, they are rescued by a small group of humans and sent on a mission to discover the source of the planet-wide alien threat.
“Themes and themes of survival, of survival in a hostile environment, are very important to me as a human being,” Damon said.
Space: Below and Beyond,” which was written and directed by Damon and based on the screenplay by his daughter, writer-director Lisa Joy, is an allegory for survival. “
And to really reflect on all the great stories that were made by humans who were able to find themselves and make a living out of it, and how to help other people to do that.”
“Space: Below and Beyond,” which was written and directed by Damon and based on the screenplay by his daughter, writer-director Lisa Joy, is an allegory for survival.
In it, an astronaut named Rick Deckar (Matt Damon) discovers that he has the ability to travel to a world in which the human race is in a precarious position because of a threat to their very existence that is growing.
But his first mission in space, which is called “The Rescue,” goes horribly wrong, and he finds himself trapped on the dying planet, where the life-giving planet water is dwindling.
It is during his escape that he meets the female alien who will become his wife, and that’s the beginning of the story.
“The fact that I was able to come to terms with this really important concept of life, that was a very difficult thing for me, and it’s really the only thing that I really had to deal with for a long time, and so I think it was an important thing to do,” he added.
“I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t the most tragic thing, because then it would become a cliché.
It was something that I wanted to reflect upon.”
Ahead of the ceremony, Damon spoke about his role in the space-race saga and how the story is a reflection of human nature.
“There’s a lot more to it than just the story that I have been telling.
It’s not just about what you think you know about the story, it’s about what life is about.
I know what I’m supposed to think.’ “
A lot of them just went ‘I can’t believe you’re talking about this,’ and they went ‘it’s not that hard.
I know what I’m supposed to think.’
“We’re on this little spaceship and we’re about to leave the planet and all of a sudden the water is getting low and we can’t make it to the other side of the ship. “
And all of the crew are having a little panic, and we are just all looking for a way out. “

And all of the crew are having a little panic, and we are just all looking for a way out.
And then we realize we have to go back and we have a really good chance of surviving, because of the gravity of the Earth and the lack of oxygen, and all the other things that are happening, and our crew is having a panic attack because they can’t even figure out how
