power sat progress
- You might be amused.
Took lots of flack
Comment about it here
On the other hand, also coming into my screen today was a blog entry
from The Oildrum, specifically
a<http://www.theoildrum.com/node/5485#more> guest blog under the
byline of "Gail the Actuary" in which an expert on space-based solar
power explained how a new approach to the launch of vehicles may be
able to cut the cost enough that space-based solar energy would
become an answer, even the answer, to our future energy problems.
Space-based solar arrays are one of those technologies that are
always somewhere over the horizon, and some would say over the
rainbow. If you take a few minutes to read this blog, and again the
comments, you find the dissonance on full display. On the one hand
you have a person saying that there may be an energy answer after
fossil fuels. On the other hand you have lots of people not only
saying it is not possible, but directly arguing that a human die-back
is more desirable than cheap energy.
And so it goes.
