      It seems to me that the solar towers are the only thing massive enough to supply our energy needs.  Weather they " be " the tower ( main source) or a tower used to piggy back fossils like the ones Otto describes.  I don't understand why this has not taken off any faster. I saw they have plans for as soon as 2010 but not here in the U.S.  Does anyone know what is going on?  Why don't we built them right here?

      This aspect has been considered and due to more risks of having a mishap on the launch pad or close to earth, this method of disposing off any radio active material was abondoned. A few years ago a Satellite came very close to earth and crashed in Canada, spilling radioactive material used in Thermo-Nuclear power generator. After that such power sources were replaced by Photovoltaic PV Solar Cells (and Fuell Cells in International Space Station), much safer than earlier Thermo-Nuclear powerr sources.

      -1. I agree with Bashir, except I'd delete the supernatural element.

      -2. Re: space. I've wondered about it for some time. Humanity has some
      reliable big rockets. Could a payload of nuclear waste be sent up with just
      enough ooomph to escape Earth gravity? I guess the sun's gravity would ensure
      delivery to the big furnace, where it wouldn't even make a ripple. Perhaps
      with a pair of gravity assist "slingshots" as it swings by Venus and Mercury.
      I don't know how many such shots it would take, but it should be worth

      - We are all Human beings here together. We have to help one another, since
      otherwise there is NO ONE who will help.
      - All countries need a NO REGRETS strategic energy policy. Think ahead 7
