So let's see, we don't know how to build practical power satellites but if
we had something else that we know even less how to build then they would be
dirt cheap. And on the basis of this "financial analysis" you expect people
to invest in the venture. Recent events have shown that bankers aren't
exactly rocket scientists, but they're not THAT dumb.
