“The High Frontier: The Untold Story of Gerard K. O’Neill” tells the untold story of Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill who in 1977 wrote the book, The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space, which sparked a grassroots movement to build Earth-like habitats in space in order to solve Earth’s greatest crises. The film is told through “Gerry’s Kids” as they affectionately call themselves; his peers, family, and the younger generation who followed that movement and are now leading the modern day space industry.

“The High Frontier: The Untold Story of Gerard K. O’Neill” is a Multiverse Media production made in association with Subtractive Inc. The film is Executive Produced by Dylan Taylor (CEO at Multiverse Media & Voyager Space Holdings,) Produced & Written by Will Henry (Creative Director at Multiverse Media,) Directed by Ryan Stuit (Creative Director at Subtractive Inc,) and Produced by Kyle Schember (Co-Founder and CEO at Subtractive Inc.)

Who was Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill? O’Neill was an American physicist, inventor, and space activist best known for writing the 1977 book, The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space. The book details how humans could build rotating space habitats in low-Earth orbit using a design he called the “O’Neill Cylinder.” The habitat could recreate Earth’s gravity and would house millions of people for work and play, eventually solving the major concerns facing Earth such as hunger, overpopulation, dwindling resources, and war. His book and activism launched the movement to the global stage, forever inspiring a generation of free thinkers, space leaders, and altering the course of American space industry forever. Dr. O’Neill passed in 1992 from Leukemia, but his vision still lives on thanks to the “Gerry’s Kids,” those who were inspired by Dr. O’Neill and keep his vision alive today.
