This is the trailer for the third in Homer Hickam's Helium-3 series, Crater Trueblood & The Lunar Rescue Company. A production by Pony Horton (gravityarchmedia.blogspot.com). You'll need to watch it more than once to get all the inside jokes and references of this 22nd Century tale. Look for the slime mold gillie channeling Truman Capote on Crater's shoulder. Also, among other special effects, there's a VW bug in the rocket junk yard, a homage to the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars (dice hanging in rocket cockpit), an asteroid smacking the canopy of the "fuser" ship (look quick or you'll miss it), steam punk analog controls (the book is a little steam punky, too), the rotating space station at L5 (an actual NASA design), the liquid dish telescope on the far side of the moon (another actual design for a telescope that can see planets on distant stars), and the "fuser" ship itself, a von Braun-ish retro design, nuclear warheads going off on Earth (just as the book cover swings into view). Watch several times to get the full flavor of this delightful book trailer! Enjoy! To order the book, go here: homerhickam.com/books/lunar_rescue.shtml .
