L5 First City in Space

As we kick off this holiday season Ralph, Dennis and I would like to extend our heart felt warm wishes to our readers the world over. Today we would like to present a very hopeful vision of the human future rooted in the work of space visionary Gerard K. O’Neill and outlined in his ground breaking book “The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space”. With great eloquence O’Neill showed my generation of the 1970s, reeling from the political aftermath of Watergate, the Arab oil embargo, the dire predictions of the Club of Rome, and the soaring gasoline prices, that there were no limits to growth or the future prosperity of the human species. O’Neil’s vision provided my generation a clear and hopeful message more – There are no limits to growth but only limits to human imagination and nerve. Human inventiveness and ingenuity can help us surmount any problem or obstacle in our path. This is the message we hope we have been conveying to our readers for the past year. So dear readers we wish you all a happy holiday season and may your minds always be at ease with hopeful visions of tomorrow.

So then without further adieu we present for your viewing pleasure the IMAX film: L5 First City in Space. This IMAX movie was the very first I ever saw and it was in 3 D. I was present at its premiere in New York City as a guest of the National Space Society. The film can be seen in its entirety by following this link – L5 First City in Space.
