Next Tuesday, March 24 at 2 pm I am giving a talk at 2 pm at NASA
Ames,  building 262, room 100.  The announcement reads:

"Among other things, Keith will describe a unique launch system
concept using a suborbital vehicle to take payloads above the
atmosphere and a large, ground-based laser to accelerate payloads to
orbital velocity.  While obviously difficult to implement, this
concept may enable massive economies of scale to enable whole new
classes of space applications.  Vigorous critique of the proposed
system is strongly encouraged."

The talk title is "A Comprehensive Solution to Energy and Climate
Problems Utilizing Space Resources."

It uses this set of slides:

I gave the talk to a group of about 30 PhDs in physics and chemistry
to general approval.  One comment, "Seems pretty straight forward".
Unfortunately the rules under which I gave the
talk preclude me saying who I talked to though I can make the content public.

The guy who set up the talk doesn't know how to open it to non NASA
people.  Perhaps someone would like to set up another talk while I am
in the area.
