"Nukes in Space": The Nuclearization and Weaponization of the Heavens
A video documentary by Karl Grossman (52:30 minutes)
"Nukes In Space" is the powerful, award winning documentary that exposes the U.S. government's push to deploy nuclear technology in space. This is being done despite the enormous danger, the huge expense, and a clear energy alternative: solar power. Nukes In Space reveals who and what is behind the move to nuclearize and weaponize space and the danger this represents to life. And it reports on the growing movement against this threat.
Features interviews and excerpts from Dr. Michio Kaku, Harvey Wasserman, Dr. Helen Caldicott, Dr. Ernest Sternglass and shows why the U.S. government is deploying nuclear technology in space.

"Nukes in Space 2, Unacceptable Risks."
Begins where Nukes In Space: The Nuclearization and Weaponization of the Heavens left off, at the Cassini launch and may be the fastest and best way to educate people before the flyby!
This video is expected to be available in October, 1998 from EnviroVideo:
