Gaia Selene – Saving Earth by Colonizing the Moon

Filed under: Alex Michael Bonnici,space colonies,Space Colonization,Space Solar Power — ralphbuttigieg @ 9:01 pm

Today I decided to post the following promo for the feature documentary entitled ‘GAIA SELENE’. This documentary outlines just the type of space program we need to help solve many of our earth bound problems. A Space program that is both politically and economically sustainable as well justifiable. There are two and a half ways to save the Earth and two of them are on the Moon. The half measure that remains for us on Earth is to create a society committed to conservation and creating a Zero Waste Culture totally dedicated to recovering its reusable resources.

A new technological study reveals that by the year 2050 we will need three times as much primary power and it will have to be three times as clean. There is no earthly technology now on line, or capable of coming on line by the year 2050, that can help solve our energy and environmental problems.

This is program very reminiscent of that outlined by the late Gerald K O’Neill’s in his book ‘The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space’. O’Neill’s book emphasized the role of space colonies in building space based solar power satellites to provide earth with a safe, clean and plentiful supply of renewable energy.
