Visioneer – The Peter Diamandis Story
One of the most important films of 2016
Peter Diamandis dreamed of outer space his whole life. But since the days of his childhood, when the Apollo program was at its height, America’s excitement for the exploration of space has waned, even if Peter’s obsession never did. So Peter set out to find a way to kick-start the next evolution of spaceflight, inspiring people all over the world to look to the stars again. “Visioneer” tells the story of Peter’s vision to create the “X Prize,” a $10 million contest meant to encourage the creation of new space vehicles and a whole new space industry. Through hard work, passion, and a never-say-die attitude, Peter and his colleagues managed to overcome hurdle after hurdle to create the Ansari X Prize and help usher in a new era of private space flight.
Those of you who know me well, will know I’ve been working on some of these projects / concepts for over three decades.
We are at an exciting time.
It’s challenging to face problems, and opportunities that seem beyond the impossible.
Peter has a unique perspective, and many of my friends and partners know him well.
I must admit we’ve yet to spend quality time together.
As with many people in the public eye, we think we know them, and it’s interesting when you start to hear more of the stories of how the dots connected, that you can see the work of The Success Spiral at play.
