Salutations. My name is Rebecca, and I take interest in many things. I'm an INTP, and I like music (I'm a trombonist), science, math, art in general, and various anime/tv... the world has so much in store– name it and I just might like it. But, there is only chaos here, and nothing more.
"The device, worn around one’s wrist, works essentially like two extra fingers adjacent to the pinky and thumb. The robot, which the researchers have dubbed "supernumerary robotic fingers," or "SR fingers," consists of actuators linked together to exert forces as strong as those of human fingers during a grasping motion."
Here Comes the Sun: Mirrors in orbit would reflect sunlight onto huge solar panels, and the resulting power would be beamed down to Earth. Image: John MacNeill
Imagine looking out over Tokyo Bay from high above and seeing a man-made island in the harbor, 3 kilometers long. A massive net is stretched over the island and studded with 5 billion tiny rectifying antennas, which convert microwave energy into DC electricity. Also on the island is a substation that sends that electricity coursing through a submarine cable to Tokyo, to help keep the factories of the Keihin industrial zone humming and the neon lights of Shibuya shining bright.
But you can’t even see the most interesting part. Several giant solar collectors in geosynchronous orbit are beaming microwaves down to the island from 36 000 km above Earth.
It’s been the subject of many previous studies and the stuff of sci-fi for decades, but space-based solar power could at last become a reality—and within 25 years, according to a proposal from researchers at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The agency, which leads the world in research on space-based solar power systems, now has a technology road map that suggests a series of ground and orbital demonstrations leading to the development in the 2030s of a 1-gigawatt commercial system—about the same output as a typical nuclear power plant.
You are THE HOMESTUCK FANDOM, and you won’t judge the other fandoms for judging you. You agree with them, really. You should just disappear. That would be better for everyone.
You are the HOMESTUCK FANDOM. These past few months, you’ve made a lot of friends, and regardless of what everyone else thinks, you decide to hold on to the faint possibility that people might be able to like you along with everyone else.
