Relatively ancient and inactive

I present to you the source of endless unbridled hilarity!

This shit is genius! I laughed quite a lot. :><:

A little tease:

Que Sera, Sera.

Get the fuck out of here :disgust:

But really, that is hilarious.

I actually think this might work.

The principle would, but the succeed of it would depend on the weight of what is contained in the tube. I believe a human would drop out of there pretty quickly. :P

Uh, apparently you guys need to study up a bit on surface tension. :rolleyes:

lol, no it wouldn't.

Also, shit is pretty clever.

It's already applied.
There are solar-panels on satellites. There are also plans to create space-solar-battery-chargers that would induce the energy of the solar panels to a specific place on Earth, which could be an electric central.

I don't think electricity can cross that distance of wiring. The only way something like this would work is if we had cells that were on-site of the panels. The cells store energy like giant batteries, and then we can transport the cells to a closer location.

I think resistance in the wires becomes greater at longer distances, and so the amount of energy to create a current from near the sun to earth in a direct contact line would be a lot, and the line would have to be huge (thick).

There were two ways: one involving lasers, one involving microwaves. Both are ways to induce energy from distance.

Inducing? I'm not sure what you even mean.

Inducing is probably the wrong term, but you can indeed transform solar energy into a laser or micro-waves that would target a specific spot on Earth which would transform the laser/micro-waves back into energy.

You can't put those things that close to the sun because 1. no one would be able to survive long enough to put them there, and 2. they would probably melt should the sun decide to flare up as it does quite often.

I am pretty sure that picture is not to scale. There is nothing inherently impossible about large-scale solar energy harvest using orbital solar panels close to the sun.

Hence why we should let you try it first :awesome:

Oh, it's possible I can imagine, but humans are unable to do it, at least any time soon.
So, no, it wouldn't work.
