A Match Made in Heaven
Popular Science is covering the current X-Prize completion Wirefly. This new X-Prize is being sponsored by the same people that funded the original X-Prize and is about trying to develop technologies for building a space elevator. There are already all kinds of
controversies stories. You can also check out the coverage at Space.com. More important is the video of Al Gore’s take on the new National Space Policy during his speech.
It has the potential, down the road, to create the kind of fuzzy thinking and chaos in our efforts to exploit the space resource as the fuzzy thinking and chaos of the Iraq policy has created for us in Iraq. It is a very serious mistake in my opinion.
I present the Popular Science YouTube video in full. Take a look.
X-Prize, Al Gore and NSP: A match made in heaven? You decide.
