Why, theoretical studies seem to suggest rather different scenarios,
especially with relatively "clean", especially designed, H bombs, but there
is no doubt that some degree of radioactive pollution would be the price to
pay for a way much lower price-to-GEO for kg of solar power stuff, in view
of supposedly extinction-threatening warming effects of ongoing carbon
emissions., which would be even, albeit in fact very marginally. inflated by
a large deployment of chemical rockets.
