Japan Plans To Launch Solar Power Station In Space By 2040
I was just browsing some old pages and came across this one from 2001.
It made me think about how far would people go to provide clean power for our future
One economic hurdle so far is that it would cost about 23 yen per kilowatt hour to generate power in space compared to nine yen for thermal or
nuclear power generation.
"But we will consider ways to lower the costs," Takenouchi said.
See the key word there.. CONSIDER..
This is so highly commendable..The fact that they will go ahead anyway regardless of the 'fiscal cost'
They will try to lower the cost but they're going to do it anyway.
so here's the question.
How much would YOU be prepared to pay for a clean limitless supply of power?
Is money really important enough to suffer the consequences of a depleted earth?
Think about it..put your hands in your pocket and take a good look at what money actually is..bits of metal and paper..
Just my weird thought for tonight..
