Institute of Space Commerce (ISC) Partners with Multiverse Media Group to help Launch award-winning Documentary Film
AUSTIN , TEXAS, USA, April 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Institute of Space Commerce (ISC), in partnerships with Multiverse Media Group and the Space Channel, announces its participation and support in the launch of the online premiere of the award-winning documentary film “The High Frontier: The Untold Story of Gerard K. O’Neill” on April 17.
Who was Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill? O’Neill was an American physicist, inventor, and space activist best known for writing the 1977 book, “The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space.” The book details how humans could build rotating space habitats in low-Earth orbit using a design he called the “O’Neill Cylinder.” The habitat could recreate Earth’s gravity and would house millions of people for work and play, eventually solving the major concerns facing Earth such as hunger, overpopulation, dwindling resources, and war. His book and activism launched the movement to the global stage, forever inspiring a generation of free thinkers, space leaders, and altering the course of American space industry forever. Dr. O’Neill passed in 1992 from Leukemia, but his vision still lives on thanks to the “Gerry’s Kids,” those who were inspired by Dr. O’Neill and keep his vision alive today.
According to Elias de Andrade, Deputy Director at the Institute of Space Commerce, the Institute named “The High Frontier” as winner of its Space Achievement Award for Full Length Documentary feature film, for covering one of the most pivotal visionaries who mapped a future of humanity as a multiplanetary species.”
