KY – Quantum Quest Premiere

Press Release:

Star Trek: Voyager’s Robert Picardo and producer/director/writer Dr. Harry Kloor will host the U.S. premiere of Quantum Quest, the 3-D computer animated Large Format adventure film, at the gala preview party of “Science With A Twist: An Evening Aboard The Enterprise” on Saturday night, January 22nd at the Louisville Science Center museum.
 
Quantum Quest interweaves animated sequences with stunning, actual space imagery captured from seven ongoing NASA and NASA/ESA space missions. In addition to Picardo, the film boasts an A-list voice cast including two Captain Kirks (veteran William Shatner and Chris Pine), two Jedi Knights (Mark Hamill and Samuel L. Jackson) and two Darth Vaders (James Earl Jones and Hayden Christensen) – a first for Hollywood and the galaxy. Quantum Quest will be released in Large Format and conventional theaters in spring, 2011. 
 
Quantum Quest is the first time that NASA’s iconic Jet Propulsion Laboratory has ever initiated a film project and the first time that Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the surface of the Moon, has participated in a feature film, lending his voice to one of the characters.
 
Combining solid, “real” science with Hollywood-style narrative story-telling, Quantum Quest is designed to communicate the excitement of space exploration and science discovery to students K through 12.  Quantum Quest will provide more free educational materials, prepared by leading educators, scientists, space and science organizations (including the Fleet Museum and the Planetary Society), than any previous Large Screen film.
 
“This is a stealth science education film disguised as fun Hollywood entertainment,” says Dr. Kloor. “Whenever we talk about science, it’s exact, but QQ’s message is to tell kids – and grownups of all ages – that
science is cool.” 
 
Dr. Harry Kloor, Ph.D. Physics, Ph.D. Chemistry, is a writer, director, producer, scientist, inventor, and national technology policy advisor.  Dr. Kloor has 15 years experience writing/developing films and TV series. In 1994, he earned the unique status of being the first and, to date, the only person to simultaneously earn two doctorates, one in Physics and the other in Chemistry, both from Purdue University.  This achievement was so singular that it gained national recognition in such publications as The New York Times and People. His writing credits include Star Trek:  Voyager and the animated series Godzilla, and Earth: Final Conflict, and he was a producer and played a key role in developing the hit TV series Earth: Final Conflict. Dr. Kloor is a recognized leader in bringing science to the public.  He founded a National Physics Outreach Program at Purdue University in 1991, forming partnerships with Marvel Entertainment and Paramount Pictures to use their iconic properties such as Spider-Man and Star Trek to advance science. Dr. Kloor has produced and directed a variety of commercials and industrial documentaries, published articles stories in various newspapers and scientific publications and sits on a range of advisory boards including Rocket Racing League (for which he was the Founding Advisor) and Signacert.  Dr. Kloor served as Science Advisor to the famed X Prize organization, and has worked in advancing science literacy to the public for over 20 years.
