Could this be future of renewable energy?

Could this be future of renewable energy? | Futuretronium Book | Scoop.it

A Japanese construction firm is proposing to turn the moon into a colossal solar power plant by laying a belt of solar panels 250 miles wide around its equator and beaming the energy back to Earth by way of lasers or microwave transmission.

The “Luna Ring” that is being proposed would be capable of sending 13,000 terawatts of power to Earth - more than three times more than the United States generated throughout the whole of 2011.

Shimizu is reluctant to put a price tag on the construction costs involved but, given adequate funding, the company believes construction work could get under way as early as 2035.

Robots and automated equipment would be developed to mine the moon’s natural resources and produce concrete and the solar cells required for the scheme.

Shimizu believes that “virtually inexhaustible, non-polluting solar energy is the ultimate source of green energy”.

In effect you are pumping more solar energy from outside earth's atmosphere to earth's surface. If this works and becomes the future, would this increase or reduce global warming?

7 Tools That Will Change the Way You Do Business Forever

7 Tools That Will Change the Way You Do Business Forever | Futuretronium Book | Scoop.it

The best part about doing business today is that this era rocks. Now is simply the best time for you to start a business – not so much because of the state of economy, or for the fantasy that almost everyone seems to have enough disposable income to buy what you have to sell.

 

It’s because technology is at its best right now and every entrepreneur – no matter how small the business is – can look and feel just as big as any of the business behemoths out there.

 

Given the quantum of information available and the incredible power of the medium that the Internet is, you’ve got to spend a lot of time just to come up with excuses for not using what you have at your disposal. If you are looking for some really awesome tools for your business, here’s a list you could bookmark:...

Nanoscale coatings improve stability and efficiency of devices for renewable fuel generation | Futuretronium Book | Scoop.it

Splitting water into its components, two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, is an important first step in achieving carbon-neutral fuels to power our transportation infrastructure – including automobiles and planes.

Now, North Carolina State University researchers and colleagues from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have shown that a specialized coating technique can make certain water-splitting devices more stable and more efficient.

Sentient code: An inside look at Stephen Wolfram's utterly new, insanely ambitious computational paradigm

Sentient code: An inside look at Stephen Wolfram's utterly new, insanely ambitious computational paradigm | Futuretronium Book | Scoop.it

In 2002 Stephen Wolfram released A New Kind of Science and immediately unleashed a firestorm of wonder, controversy, and criticism as the British-born scientist, programmer, and entrepreneur overturned conventional ideas on how to pursue knowledge.

Earlier this month, he teased something with the capacity to create as much passion — and, likely, much more actual change — in the world of programming, computation, and applications.

Joe Stafura's curator insight, December 1, 2013 2:23 PM

Across my forty years in the IT area there have been some big changes, we all have seen the impact of exponential growth of computing power on our lives. A constant in the advancement of the technologies  has been the increase in the number of people who can use or design systems. At every step, as the glass rooms of my youth   became the Smart Phones in our pockets, and much more.

 

The Natural Language system for code creation is another one of those shifts, destined to be even more impactful than the most significant shift of the past IMHO,  when personal computers were designed for homes.

 

Wolfram is a hard guy to follow at times, speaking from my experience reading his "A New Kind of Science", but it is very likely his core ideas will emerge as an important part of the framework of future computerization as we all become part of the  "Internet of Things".
