The emerging super-technology of Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) operates higher than conventional wind turbines can reach, tapping a vast upper-wind resource capable of sustainably powering hyperabundance and therapeutic geo-engineering. Many competing technical kite schemes have been proposed to unlock this power, but what form is best?
There is also the long term possibility to colonize the sky based on this power, with a lot more space for Humanity and restored Nature, but how would this revolution unfold?
The engineering science is trending toward megascale metamaterial concepts. Is this not a technical basis for energy harvesting across the solar system, from ubiquitous solar wind to intense geoflows on most planets?
