I hate it when I’m wrong, and I think I might have been wrong about the Space Elevator and Solar Power Satellites (SPS). I’ve had some ‘really smart people’ look over the calculations I put on my blog last year, and I think they’ve found a significant mistake. I’ve got some more checking to do, and, if I was wrong, it means that SPS could indeed have a major role to play in solving the earth’s energy / pollution issues.
It also means I may have to redo my presentation to the conference, and THAT’s due tomorrow afternoon. Hence I have to spend the rest of the evening working on it and will have no time to put up conference posts tonight.
But, as I said in my earlier post on the subject, I would LOVE to be wrong on this and it looks like I may have been. I certainly hope so.
