Earthlight leads the audience through 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 NASA missions to the moon or even Mars.

By addressing the challenges of keeping astronauts alive with finite resources, the scientists and technical experts working on the project provide new solutions to sustainable food production on Earth.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
