Yes. Owing to the brilliant advocacy of a few of us, I grew more and
more interested in, and informed about, the prospective of space-based
solar power - something i have never really been in more or less
dreamy rhetoric about other "renewable", and more fashionable, energy
sources - but controlled fusion still sounds to me as an irremissible
goal in the march towards a world where the two only real resources
and limiting factors are going to be information and energy.
