If we can put this

tremendous machine of ours...

which has made this victory possieble...

To work for peace...

We can look forward to the greatest age

in the history of mankind

Speed of progress in the satellite project

Can not be taken as an index

of our progress...

in ballistic missiles.

???? ?????

I feel we are on the brink

of an areal expansion...

of knowledge about ourselves

and our surroundings..

Those are beyond description of

comprehension this time.

For the first time,

we are putting cameras in the space...

and looking down on the Earth...

allowing us to discover places, things

we never seen before.

The most intelligent inhabitants

of the future world...

won't be man or monkeys.

That Will be machines.

We set sail on this new sea...

because there is new knowledge to be gained.

Whether this new ocean...

will be a sea of peace...

or a new terrifying theater of war.

"To tame the savageness of man...

" And nature, hope the life of this world."

Let us dedicate ourselves to that.

The city wide protests have...

Promising more gridlocks

in the days of weeks ahead...

Mark my words

There will never be a more

screwed up time in Washington.

But we can't let it stop us.

Maybe now is not the best time to ask

Monarch is on the cast of being shut down

Brooks. We are broke!

When this war ends,

we will never get approval

for our expedition.

I am not confident in our presentation.

I mean all of our material are loose slip.

In one day, one day...

I could have all this organized.

That we today,

have concluded an agreement...

to end the war

and bring peace with honor in Vietnam.

all American forces will be withdraw.

We don't have a day.

Hello there.

Bill Randa here to see Senator Willis.

Of course, Mr. Randa.

I left you a message this morning about

rescheduling today's appointment

But he should have some thing available

in the coming weeks.

God.

Al, you looking well.

You didn't get the message, Randa?

- To reschedule?

- For the fifth time? I must have missed

It'll be quick.

Don't get comfortable. You got five minutes.

I'm late for a meeting.

What imaginary monster

are you hunting this time?

This is a satellite photo...

of an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

It has defied discovery until now.

Many civilizations spoke of it in legends.

Skull Island.

The land where God did not finish creation.

It is notorious for the...

of ships and planes that

have gone missing there.

Like the Bermuda Triangle?

Or like that baloon foil hat that

I like to wear in the weekends?

It's more like the triangle in the hat...

but we like to think

it's much more than that.

The 1954 Castle Bravo nuclear test...

Wasn't test.

They were trying to kill something.

I believe there is an ecosystem out there

in the likes of which we can't imagine

And the place to find it is this island.

A place where myth and science meet.

Randa it's a fairy tale.

Harry Truman didn't think so

when he funded Monarch in 1946.

In terms of sheer waste...

Monarch ranks right up here

in the search for alien life.

Yeah, but those guys are nuts.

We should have shut it down years ago.

This is an opportunity for our country.

Listen, Senator,

Landsat is setting a mission to the Island

We could piggybank on that operation.

With your permission, of course.

What are you hoping to find?

Resources, medicine,

the cure for cancer, geological discoveries.

The Possible alternative fuels, Senator...

Listen, to be honest...

we do not know for sure what's in there.

Okay. But I'll tell you what we do know.
