THERE ARE TWO AND A HALF WAYS TO SAVE THE EARTH;
TWO OF THEM ARE ON THE MOON. Earth Scientists, Space Scientists, Futurists and Visionaries confront the major challenges facing us as a species and threatening our home planet.
How will we feed, house and employ ten billion humans by the year 2050?
What happens when the oil runs out?
The dangers of nuclear power and nuclear waste.
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 technology now on line, or capable of coming on line by the year 2050, that can solve our energy problem.
In the next hundred years, there’s a one chance in four hundred and fifty-five of a species-ending cosmic event. But don’t worry. We’ve developed Space Technology. We’ve developed a way to turn a cosmic threat into an asset. When we learn what we need to colonize the moon, we will be able to use that knowledge to protect ourselves and our home planet.
GAIA SELENE offers clear and do-able solutions to the crises facing us.
Space Solar Power; clean and renewable, it could replace polluting fossil fuel plants.
Lunar Solar Power; collectors crafted from lunar material could microwave power back to earth.
Power from Moon Dust; Fourty tons of 3Helium in Fusion Reactors could power the U. S for a year, and would be worth 320 Billion Dollars. We can and will do it. We have already spent a trillion dollars on space technology. Now it is time to build on what we started forty years ago. It’s not rocket science anymore. We don’t need to invent anything new.
We can colonize the moon with current technology. In doing so, we can save the earth. How will we live and work on the moon?
What it will be like to fly on wings in the one-sixth lunar gravity?
Why we will live in lavatubes under the surface. How we can travel a thousand miles an hour in maglev bullet trains.
Why the Moon is a stepping stone to the Solar System, to nearby Stars, to the Future.
