Urban Astronaut

My nine-year-old daughter was completely taken in by your performance. I could tell her about what’s going on with the planet again and again and it would just go over her head. What you’ve just done there, will stay with her forever.

The future. Earth is uninhabitable; destroyed by environmental pollution. But could this devastation have been prevented?

The Urban Astronaut, suspended in the air on a gravity defying flying machine, returns to present-day Earth to find out.

On his journey, he meets a girl who gives him hope and shows him how the human race can act to avoid planetary destruction if it acts now.
