Grounded ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The movie tells the true tale of an Alaskan wildlife filmmaker's persistent curiosity and quest to test the claims of what appears to be an outrageously simple and "too good to be true" healing concept -- physical, bare skin contact with the Earth -- which may have been known by civilizations throughout history. New research has started to confirm the unexpected, that the surface of the Earth has healing power, like a gigantic treatment table. He introduces this concept to his fellow townsmen in Haines, Alaska (population 1,700), many of whom suffer from major pain or disabling conditions. Starting with his own pain relief, he witnesses and films a surprising and miraculous healing in the town generated by simply grounding people to the Earth, that is, reconnecting them to the Earth's healing energy. Even an orphaned moose calf named "Karen" participates in the healing. The news of the town's response draws the attention of Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon, as well as doctors and scientists. --Website

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The third manned mission to the moon almost ended in horror and the 'thirteen' jinx seemed to play a role. Seventy-two hours prior to liftoff, Ken Mattingly, the Command Module Pilot, had to be replaced due to his exposure to German measles. Then, fifty-six hours into the mission, the crew was met with numerous major system failures. NASA was able to shut down the Command Module and use the Lunar Module to supply the necessary power to reach the moon and return to Earth.
