Put solar panels all around the moon in order to recover solar energy and return it to earth via lasers and microwaves? It is a project developed by the Japanese construction company Shimizu.

It is a “floating university”, a city for scientists, able to accommodate up to 7,000 researchers. She would produce her food, her energy, with zero waste. A good model at a time when whole countries are at risk of rising water.

The statement of Magnus Larsson, architect, is alarming: “The world will lose one third of its arable land by the end of the century.” He proposed the construction of a 6000-kilometer sand wall, from Mauritania to Djibouti.

Of course the project is complex. But the recent experience in Iceland leaves some hope: carbon dioxide has been turned into stone and the process is just under two years old. Why not finance this research? A good model at a time when whole countries are at risk of rising water.

The Mars One project, which wants to send humans on a journey without return to the red planet, estimates the cost of sending the first four Martian colonists to $ 6 billion … or 5.35 billion USDs.

And you, what would you like us to finance with this money?
