Sky hook and space industry could generate resources that would revolutionize society. Skike (Sky Bike) could then be possible and we could move away from combustion engines and re-green the Earth. The way to get people out of cars is to give them human-powered flight. Thinking outside the box means solar power as well and using Lunar resources we could create power that would dwarf hydro-electric and coal.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
