$2 Million NASA Power Beaming Challenge Heating Up

mercosmique Re:Orbital Strike (98 comments)

My apologies, I was utterly confused there. I thought you were talking about putting this cannon on the end of a tether, thereby making it orbit to surface. I know realise that you were probably refering to the implications of the lasers, and not the tethering part, and that I am an idiot.

$2 Million NASA Power Beaming Challenge Heating Up

mercosmique Re:Why have the energy source on the ground? (98 comments)

Kool idea but I would imagine that unless those solar panels could travel down the tether they would be rather expensive to repair and maintain. Being attached to the climber they could easily be maintained when it returns to Earth.

Lobby Groups Launch Full Assault For Canadian DMCA

mercosmique Re:Truck Drivers? (135 comments)

I hail from Saskatchewan, Canada. The general public here (farmers) could be gullible enough to believe that those newfangled bit-torrent do-hickeys are contributing to the trucking industry's troubles.
