In 1977, Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill wrote 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. O’Neill’s activism over the following 15 years until his passing in 1992 changed the course of history, and inspired an entire generation of “Gerry’s Kids” who now lead our modern day space industry. Humanizing Space tells O’Neill’s life story from its beginning, through the unknown trials of the visionary the world came to know. From his younger years as a radio broadcaster in small towns of upstate New York, to his acts of bravery as a young recruit in the Navy, to his journey forward into world-class physics inventions and contention for the Nobel Prize. This book tells the intimate details of his approach to “humanizing space,” his experience leading a generation of freethinkers, and how he overcame every step along the way.
