I almost missed the deadline for this newsletter.
Not because of a lack of news to report. Not because of a lack of ideas to discuss.
But because of lack of electricity.
I was unable to use my computer (which should have been charging) because sometime during the night, the electricity went out. The house was completely dark.
I went outside; and, as far as I could see, there were no lights. The entire neighborhood was dark. No houselights, no streetlights. The weather was mild—no excessive cold, no wind, only a light rain. No environmental reason for a power grid outage.
The outage lasted several hours.
We, at The Orion Project, are researching and developing new energy sources which will be dependable. In the year 2009, we must move forward—away from dependence on fossil fuels to new sources of energy.
For the past 100 years, we have had inventors like Nikola Tesla and Stan Meyer who have tried to help us have wondrous technologies - producing clean, safe, abundant energy. We continue the work of researching and developing such alternative technologies, which will enable us to retire the electric power grid, as each home and business will have its own power source.
The future is what we make it. Let us make it together!
