“What do the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Door County cheese curds and space colonization have in common? They’re all included in the playful indie sci-fi movie The Emissary…[Director Tim Erskine] (a mechanical engineer) made a lot of calculations to make the sci-fi as authentic as could be,” said Dr. John Beck of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society.
