Review

..awe inspiring and an excellent presentation." -- VideoLibrary.com

Moon colonization may be the best solution for solving many of Earth's problems...the energy crisis, global warming and others. -- InternetVideo.com

Product Description

There are two and a half ways to save the earth and two of them are on the moon.

Earth Scientists, space scientists, futurists and visionaries elucidate the challenges facing us as a species and threatening our home planet.

Emmy Award Winning Producer/Director Charles Proser presents a new documentary on the exciting New Frontier and the future of "Homo Spaciens".

This new work, for the first time, expresses clear solutions to the crises facing us.

How will we feed, house and employ ten billion humans by the year 2050?

What happens when the oil runs out?

The threats of nuclear fission.

Our effect on the environment, the health of the planet and our fellow creatures.

By 2050 we will need three times as much power and it will have to be three times as clean. There is no earthly technology capable of coming on line by the year 2050 that can solve our energy problem.

But don't worry.

We've developed Space Techology.... a way to turn a cosmic threat into an asset. When we learn what we need to, to colonize the moon, we will be able to use that knowledge to protect our home planet.

Space Solar Power is clean, renewable, and could replace polluting fossil fuel plants.

Lunar Solar collectors built of lunar material will microwave power to earth.

Power from Moondust. Four tons of 3Helium could power the U.S. for a year in Fusion Reactors and would be worth 8 Billion Dollars.

How we will live and work on the moon.

What it will be like to fly in lunar gravity.

Why we will live in lavatubes under the surface.

Why the Moon is a stepping stone to the Solar System, to nearby Stars, to the Future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas - bad rationales April 6, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am seriously conflicted about this DVD. I'm a life long moonophile abd was very excited when I heard about this DVD. Unfortunately, it has been a few months since I've had it and have yet to be able to stomach it enough to completion. The interviews in this DVD are very good (mostly), the computer animation passable, and the ideas in it for colonizing the moon are solid.

The problem is that the message is so wrapped in far left propaganda you can't separate the good stuff from the political message. I am a republican, but am not so far so that I dismiss all left leaning ideas out of hand. Unfortunately, this DVD is not just moderately left of center, but downright left of MoveOn. This DVD does not just claim that humans can screw up the Earth's environment if we're not careful, but that humanity and Earth will basically be irreversibly dying by 2050 if things remain unchanged. I don't even think the Sierra Club is claiming that. Another example of Gaia Selene's odd and extremely controversial ideology is the discussion of the US Army's Project Horizon moonbase in the 50's. We have a so called space advocate explaining how the Army wanted the Horizon base to act as a type of frontier outpost on the moon to facilitate colonial expansion like the old cavalry posts in the American West. Not too evil, taking care of colonists, right? Then the guy says that the Army also thought Horizon might be a good place to station ICBM's since they would be hard to first strike and be away from population centers (was it really a better idea to station nuclear weapons obviously targeted by Soviet forces in the Cold War next to major cities rather than in the realtively lifeless moon?). Then, without debate and seemingly in an "isn't it obvious" tone, the man basically says: "Whew!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Case for a Return to the Moon September 20, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While this DVD depends a little too much on environmental hysteria to make it's case, it does provide a solid rationale for a human return to the Moon to colonize it. The Moon, with it's desposits of helium 3 and it's access to solar energy, could be the Persian Gulf of the 21st Century. Only the energy will be clean, virtually limitless, and not on ground occupied by bad tempered Islamofascists. A must view for anyone interesting in summoning a future better than the present.

Review: Gaia Selene

by Douglas Jobes

Monday, August 15, 2005

Charles "Chip" Proser knows drama. With screenwriter credits for movies like Top Gun, story author and producer credits for movies such as Innerspace, and years of experience with Hollywood and the film industry, few are better than Proser at using the medium of film to stimulate the mind and evoke the deepest of human emotions. Proser delivers on both counts with his new non-fiction DVD documentary Gaia Selene: Saving the Earth by Colonizing the Moon. For those with an interest in the fate of humankind over the next century (which should be everyone) as well as those who have an innate yearning to see our species extend its range beyond the Earth, Gaia Selene is required viewing.

Gaia Selene is a collection of interviews with experts in fields as varied as the energy crisis, global warming, nuclear fusion technology, space militarization, lunar solar power, Near Earth Asteroids, space elevators, space tourism, and more. These seemingly disparate fields are woven together into a compelling theme through narration provided by the author. The common thread is that humanity is in trouble - we are depleting our resources at an unsustainable rate, in the process destroying the very biosphere we ourselves require for life - and that the only way we can sustain our species in the years ahead is by looking upward toward the Moon.

The renowned British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking once said he did not believe humanity would survive the next thousand years unless it moved into space.
