    Is this reality or just a dream? I can imagine the energy companies making a bid for the Sun to claw back some of their profits; but if this can be made a reality, it\’s a breath-taking reality.

The idea has been around for a long time, of course; but to see it in reality, in a economically viable form, makes it a tangible reality for many. Which is the key point. In the past it has only been possible for those with money, and more than a touch of eccentricity. Thank you for making it real!
