this idea has survived and continues to be considered.Ah, but what entity will have the guts/money/where-with-all to try and build one? And where would they put it? What government is going to let a company put it on their soil? What other governments are going to scream about "what happens if it falls down on top of us?" Not to mention the envirnomental extremists that already worry about radiation from satellites/probes exploding on launch!And if a government wants to do build it itself to retain control, just what agency will do it? The US would have to make a new one (oh the bureaucracy!) because putting it under NASA's purview is probably a bad idea.Or should we stick to science and not bother with the political/socio-economical ramifications?RMPS to Mark, does your novel cover any of this or is more of a pure techie novel? I like both kinds myself.
