Some Select Reviews:
Your production is the best there is regarding NEOs, the threat of impact, and what might be done about it.
-Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut; Chairman, ASE-NEO Committee; Chairman B-612 Foundation, May 21, 2007
"A brilliant, original and creative look at the danger Earth faces from space."
-David H. Levy, Jarnac Observatory, Tucson, Arizona, May 23, 2007
"It's fascinating - you have done an excellent job in blending the scientific, technological, political and military aspects of NEO threats. I cannot agree with you more that it's not if; it's just a matter of when!
Without exaggeration, I can say this is one of the most important documentaries made. You may quote me on this."
-Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Author (of many books including "2001: A Space Odyssey"), Colombo, Sri Lanka, May 23, 2007
