Re: The Horse!
Well, I was a freshman physics major at Stony Brook while LBJ was finishing his presidency, and you can guess that no one bemoans the fact that we don't have any serious ambitions off-earth more than I do. The one massively interesting thing going on now is that, thanks to fracking, we now seem to be sitting on a virtually limitless supply of natural gas. Once the people who control the hundreds of billions of dollars become convinced that this is for real and permanent, a massive shift in this country's energy infrastructure, including and perhaps especially the electric grid, is bound to take place. A neat coincidence is that it's happening at the dawn of the IOT. It's not like building army bases on the moon, but, it will be, at least, world-changing.
