UA Documentary "Earthlight" Examines the Key to Sustainability on Earth

Posted By on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Earthlight is a documentary produced by the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and filmmaker Cody Sheehy. It poses the question: Is learning to live on the Moon the key to sustainability on Earth? The documentary aired recently on PBS but is now available online for viewing. Viewers can also purchase the documentary by clicking the shopping cart icon at http://cals.arizona.edu/earthlight.

Film synopsis:

When Apollo astronauts stood on the Moon and looked back at the Earth, they were the first humans to see our planet as a completely isolated system, bounded on all sides by black. Now, 45 years later, a new documentary produced by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the University of Arizona (UA), “Earthlight,” explores the challenges facing the human race and how the technology we are designing to return to the Moon might be extremely useful here on Earth as well.

This 30-minute documentary leads the audience into a story about the current food challenges our civilization faces through the lens of UA Scientists who are building a greenhouse food production system that may someday be used on the Moon.
