Nothing to do with gaming. Just had to point this one out: it’s been on my wishlist-for-humanity for, um, oh, forever.
Pentagon Considering Study on Space-Based Solar Power
Not exactly a new or original idea, btw. For example, I have an Omni magazine from May 1993 discussing the same basic idea: article was titled Power From Space: Now!
“Now!” was apparently perceived by the powers-that-be as a relative term…
It’s apparently going to be a Solar Power themed day for me. In addition to the above, the electrician is due at noon to get a feel for my house wiring in preparation for the installation of my brand-spanking-new 2.4 kw grid of piezoelectric collectors (solar panels) in the next week or so.
Finally. Nearly a year after I first started the purchasing process.
Better late than never, I guess…
