Yeah, I thought were gonna use the sun and take some of it to get energy or something.

All we have to do is hydrolyze some of the Earth's massive quantities of dihydrogen monoxide.
The Sun is best used as a giant in situ power plant.
I thought the sun was a extremely powerfull element, has allot of energy and would make sense to use it.
Well yeah leaning some phsysics on necular suns a fusion or fission reacting thing, made out of helium/hydrogen?
But thing is, its the size of our planntet? or even bigger, thus thats extremelly large ammounts of power existing
Take allot of space shipps with solar pannels, Fly out to space and cover the sun with it. Get electric and fly back to earh lolEdited by Iwamotto Tetsuz - 2/11/16 at 6:33pm
