I was bought and sold, somewhere in the mnid 1980s, when I read the book 'the high frontier', by Gerald K. O'Neil. His proposals were so elegant. I still think that this is the road to go forward for humanity, and probably the only way to retain and expand our humanity (and our abundance).
It was an almost surreal experience to then receive support of Mrs. Martine Rothblatt in this amazing endeavor - to literally be instrumental in the construction of model of a Bernal Sphere/island One habitat according to the vision of Gerald. I was like a dream come true
The guy doing most of the work is Simon Deering (not hotdogs!), the prop builder who managers creatrix.nl, [and someone I deeply admire] - Simon has involved in the work on the original movie Alien and he is a career model crafter. This will be one amazing journey culminating in the Tranvision conference in October this year, where we will present the model and give it over to Mrs. Rothblatt, after which we assume she will put it on display in one of the Terasem offices.
Take this journey with me and see how the vision Gerald formulated a life time ago can still enchants and puts stars in your eyes. :)
