The movie Space Traders is based on Derrick Bell 's short story it 's directed by Reginald Hudlin and stars Jason Bernard, Larry Anderson, Robert Guillaume, George Wallace, Brian Reddy, Brock Peters, Edward Edwards and Bob Gunton. Space Traders is about aliens coming to America offering gold and clean air in exchange for all black people with a certain amount of melanin in their skin. I would say this movie is valid and invalid. The movie has a deeper meaning to it than what is portrayed But the graphics are horrible. I can understand why its terrible because it was made in the 90s, so technology wasn 't really developed however even due to the poor graphics they still managed to get the author 's point across.
Armstrong and Aldrin were the first people to ever step foot on the moon. They accomplished a dangerous job that people thought was unachievable.

This shows that President Nixon had this speech prepared in case the mission had gone wrong. The speech is effective because the audience understands and are able to connect with what the President is
Barton learns this through his experiences with Marilyn in space and it changes his perspective on the world. When Marilyn decides to get on the spaceship to see her brother, she believes that all she will have to do for breaking the rules is pay a fine. She is ignorant to the truths of the situation because, “she was of Earth and had not realized that the laws of the space frontier must, of necessity, be as hard and relentless as the environment that gave them birth” (Goodwin 12). Barton on the other hand knows that she will have to be jettisoned because he is a pilot from space and realizes that there was absolutely no other option. The juxtaposition of Barton and Marilyn’s view on the situation at hand develops the theme because they both come to the understanding that, even though it is unfair, she must be jettisoned because you can’t change the laws of nature.

Within the novel it said. “ ...intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own..”(Wells 9). Here Wells signals the readers the Martians will most likely not be able to conquer Earth because despite their intellectual, scientific, and technological superiority the aliens are not immortal and thus will have to pass away at some point. Another example is, “ ...sticking into the skin of our old planet Earth like a poisoned dart” (Wells 43). This statement could be interpreted as the Martins imitating that of numerous toxins coursing through a body.
