    Default Japan Plans to Have a Power Plant in Space in a Decade

    LOL shades of simcity

    JAXA, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, recently announced that it intends to stick a solar-generated power station in orbit for the first time by 2025—just over a decade. Picture this: Floating 24,000 miles above the Earth's surface is a mammoth power plant (power satellite may be more accurate) that stretches several miles long, weighs 10,000 metric tons, and is covered with solar panels basking in the sun and storing up its powerful energy.

    Very true. The problem is that it may already be too late. We need drastic changes in a short amount of time to even has a chance to pass along a livable environment. Bullheaded fools that say Global warming is a myth and Energy companies that pay them well to stay that way.

    well
    if yall think this is a good idea
    then i need to open you up to an even more mind blowing possibility

    thorium

    more abundant than the sum of all the fossile fuels on the face of the earth combined, more safe, and efficient than uranium

    and not being used at all.

    not used at all.

    Im a geek bro! I know what that is. Was once a candidate to fuel power plants instead of the Nuclear Reactors we use today. The research was halted for the LFTR (liquid fluoride thorium reactor) long time ago. There is now new blood looking into it as a cleaner source of energy. None of the original research was destroyed thank god. There is a lot of hiccups they will need to overcome for it to be possible. You know like MONEY! to research and prove that a reactor is actually do able.


    NPR does the mind a lot of good!
