Keith I quietly came to the same conclusion over the past year since you and
I have been discussing heavy-lift to GEO.  I have a pretty good feel for the
pace of this kind of stuff, and estimated it would take fifty years if we
really managed to get the ball rolling.  I expect the singularity to happen
sooner than we can get either space based power generation or significant
benefit from global warming.
