It never ceases to amaze me how, in the 21st century, all we can come up with for "new-improved-state-of-the-art-technology" is to place a million
mirrors on the ground to intensify and redirect energy over to a bunch of boilers.... to boil water.... to turn a turbine.... to produce energy.
[insert slap forehead here]
I say we take all the brainiacs who came up with this idea, place them in a paper airplane and fly them over the field of mirrors.
Solar cells are advancing all the time. They don't boil water or any other "boring" stuff, they just sit there and give us energy. That seems
pretty amazing to me!
We still move stuff around on trains too, just because something doesn't grace the pages of popular science doesn't mean it's not important/useful
