Elon Musk claims scientists are wrong about Mars terraforming, says we can definitely do it

Elon Musk has long had his sights set on an eventual goal of making Mars a more habitable planet. His dreams of manned SpaceX flights ferrying settlers to the Red Planet are no secret, but in order for that to be a reality we’d need to spruce Mars up a bit. Recently, scientists delivered some devastating news to anyone who dreams of Mars becoming Earth-like, and a new study revealed that there More

The world’s largest solar farm rises in the remote Egyptian desert

More than a century later, that vision has been resurrected. The world’s largest solar park, the $2.8-billion Benban complex, is set to open next year 400 miles south of Cairo in Egypt’s Western Desert.
It will single-handedly put Egypt on the clean energy map.
That is no small feat for a country that’s been hobbled by its longtime addiction to cheap, state-subsidized fossil fuel More
