This Princeton University physics professor changed the face of space exploration during the 1970s and 80s with his plans for building space colonies in free space in Earth orbit. These ideas, and a book he released, THE HIGH FRONTIER: HUMAN COLONIES IN SPACE, made an incredible impact on a generation fueled by Star Trek and a dream of venturing out into this unknown territory. Gerry made appearances on the Johnny Carson Show, the Round Table with Harold Hayes, even Isaac Asimov was a fan. Unfortunately, Gerry passed in 1992 from a battle with leukemia and his space colonies and dreams never came to fruition. Until now..
With Gerry’s story, and the help of everyone involved with the film, we hope to keep his dream alive and maybe even see a day where “O’Neill Cylinders” are above our own heads!

“Life is extraordinarily rare, extraordinarily precious. Opening the high frontier means making possible and ensuring the survival of the human race.”
