solving the global climate crisis.
On December 14th 1976, I received the first of two recommendations from Buckminster Fuller for originating a theory about the initial stages of development for technologically-advanced extraterrestrial civilizations.
That theory is that in order to become a space-faring species, any advanced civilization must build a space vehicle launch facility on the surface of their planet that would use the energy from their local star. In the case of human beings on this planet, we would need to build a solar (or any renewable) energy collection facility that would convert sunlight into electricity to electrolyze, liquefy and store adequate amounts of hydrogen from ocean water for the indefinite operation of a space vehicle launch site.
The Solar Space Port Initiative would have the goal of making the Kennedy Space Center’s Space Shuttle Launch Facility use liquid hydrogen and oxygen and electricity produced only from renewable energy.
