I thought this article was joke
I kept waiting for the punchline but then I realized it must have been a serious post. There are so many great ideas NASA could/ should be working on. Some of them might be considered far out, like space elevators and orbiting solar panels. This kind of fantasy "research" however does enhance NASA's reputation very much. It is no wonder that powerful corporations that have heavily invested in defeating climate change legislation can convince so many people that all the research is baseless and merely scare-mongering.
