Chinese city 'plans to launch artificial moon to replace streetlights.

Trump will want a bigger moon and then we are stuck in a super power "Moon Race".

It'll end in tears.

Is there something funny about gaslighting advances here?

If they could just beam light down and filter out the redder frequency warmer rays it might actually (in theory!) be good for delaying the end of civilization as we know it.

There is of course the little matter of the rocket fuel required to get it up there in the first place.

Maybe the Chinese will get into some Niven-sized projects. It's exciting to think someone will, now that the US has lost their space-faring ability.

I just had a brilliant idea. What if we put giant mirrors in geostationary orbit that reflected light around to the dark side of the Earth?

I prefer an orbiting strand of macaroni, with enough spin to make gravity on the inner surface. Then' add more macaroni segments until the twisting tube is long enough to circle the sun enough times to stop wasting that energy.

A 'Dyson-Macaroni', which we could then use to move the whole sun along with us, while we toured the stars, littering and spreading English everywhere.

Possibly, but what if we stopped using electricity to light our cities at night and instead used a small amount of this reflected light to light them. Would the savings in emissions from reduced use of fossil fuel power stations have a greater effect on the climate than the small amount of light reflected from the sun?

:dunno:

A better approach would be to put solar cells in space and send the energy back to earth via whatever method (probably a high powered laser would be the go).
