But the biggest cost is doing nothing. The biggest cost is subsidising a dying fossil fuel industry, building more and more coal plants, and denying what is plain as day: that we are in a deep climate hole, and to get out we must first stop digging.

  5. Phil Willems:

    This to me is a fine example of how space technology becomes ever more extraordinary by building upon its prior successes, we use formation flying in space every time a capsule docks at the International Space Station.
