"Space Generations: From Sputnik to Today to Tomorrow" tells a brief, but concise history of space exploration in a montage of images and videos of the most significant moments of outer space exploration since 1957. It also uses graphics to expose the critical issue of the long-term, sustainable use of Earth's orbit. The movie also touches upon future, visionary space projects including mining the Moon and space-based solar power.
The short movie was done in partnership by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL) and premiered at the Space Generation Congress 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic on September 24, 2010.
The idea behind the movie belongs to Prof. Dr. Frans G. von der Dunk, Othmer Professor of Space Law at the Space and Telecommunications Law Program of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln while Art Anisimov, SGAC National Point of Contact of Belarus and space law student at UNL, and Andy Bacon, head of SGAC's Near Earth Objects (NEO) working group.
