The other day, I became a fan of The Universe on Facebook. This allowed the universe to publish things to my wall. So, yesterday while looking through the news feed, I saw a headline which was quite astonishing.
"Solar Plant in Space Gets Go-Ahead"
If you read this (http://greeninc.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/12/03/solar-plant-in-space-gets-go-ahead/) it will amaze you as well.
The project will cost over one billion dollars and will produce the same amount of energy that the regular power plants all ready do. Is this a waste of money? Shouldn't this money be going something more valuable? Like saving our economy? Who approved it anyway??
Are we taking advantage of our technology AND our sun?
I think so.
Lets keep things simple, for humanity's sake.
