Ok, some questions:

This is somethingbeing seriously undertaken?

This news site is somewhat of a tabloid in Britain, isn't it?

Does anyone know if there'san international treaty forbidding something like this? If something like this ever does get up there, what's next, panels to reflect sunlight to the Earth 24/7/365 so people don't need night-time?

Wow...
