Commenting about 'Planetary Defense', Sir Arthur C. Clarke wrote:

"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."

Who will save Earth?

Scientists and the military have only recently awakened to the notion that impacts with Earth do happen. "Planetary Defense" meets with both the scientific and military communities to study our options to mitigate an impact from asteroids and comets, collectively known as NEO's (Near Earth Objects). “Civilization is ill prepared for the inevitable. It's not if an impact will happen with the Earth, it's when!”

"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.
