Planetary Defense - A Space Viz Production
Synopsis - Planetary Defense
Who will save Earth?
Scientists and the military have only recently awakened to the notion that impacts with Earth do still happen.
"Planetary Defense" meets with both the scientific and military communities to study our options to mitigate an impact from asteroids and comets, collectively known as NEO's (Near Earth Objects).
"Civilization is ill prepared for the inevitable. It's not if an impact will happen with the Earth, it's when!"
M Moidel's "Planetary Defense" - nominated Best Picture for a '2008 Sir Arthur Clarke Award' (The British 'Oscars(r)' for Space Achievements) alongside "Ron Howard's In the Shadow of the Moon". Fellow nominees include Stephen Hawking and Sir Richard Branson.

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
