MOTHERBOARD/VICE -- Cox teaches digital media at San Francisco State and for decades he has been involved with film, video game development, and emerging forms of digital media like virtual reality. In 2014, he staged the first part of his Rocket Opera at San Francisco’s Other Cinema which focused on the ill-fated Soviet moon mission. The second installment of the trilogy, “Lunar Modules” was performed last year and detailed the American moon mission as seen from the other side of the iron curtain. His final installment of the trilogy premieres at Other Cinema this Saturday and focuses on the women heroes of the American and Soviet space race.
