Space Travel Movies

It’s been 50 years since Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek The Original Series landed. In the words of Captain Kirk, “. . . a dream that became a reality and spread throughout the stars.”

To join in this celebration, Beaches|life Movie Pics look to the stars, or more accurately, travel to the stars. Who hasn’t thought about jumping into a rocket ship and taking off to the great unknown?

Well, we can’t make those dreams come true, but we can certainly help your imagination get you there.
