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", reviews current efforts to save Earth from catastrophic impacts by asteroids and comets. Features leading scientists, military officials and futurists; including Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Freeman Dyson, David H. Levy and many more. Available on DVD.

"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, "2001: A Space Odyssey"

"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

"A brilliant, original and creative look at the danger Earth faces from space."
-David H. Levy, Jarnac Observatory, Tucson, Arizona, May 23, 2007

"No matter where the next big impact occurs, we're all in big trouble!"
-Duncan Steel (Space Researcher, Author)

Reviews:
"Planetary Defense, the film, is a documentary that explores how ill- prepared we are to prevent our own extinction from asteroid and comet impacts. Filmmaker M. Moidel interviewed all the right people, asked them all the right questions, and leaves the viewer scared for our future,
but empowered to do something about it."

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director, American Museum of Natural History, NYC, May 24, 2007

To: AAAS

Dear AAAS Science Journalism Awards,

I hereby nominate M. Moidel's "Planetary Defense" (from Space Viz Productions www.SpaceViz.com) for a Scientific Journalism Award in both the Television category and the Online category.

It's a fascinating blend of the scientific, technological, political and military aspects of threats to our planet from near-Earth objects or NEOs. I fully agree with the film's premise: 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.

Sincerely yours,
Arthur C Clarke
