WINGS

SCI­EN­TIF­IC AMER­I­CAN HEAD­LINED ITS REJEC­TION OF THIS SUP­POSED SOLU­TION IN APRIL 2023; BUT ENGI­NEERS AT MAJOR UNI­VER­SI­TIES LIKE HAR­VARD AND OXFORD EMBRACE GEO-ENGI­NEER­ING. SOME MAJOR MEDIA ARE TOUT­ING IT. AND SO ARE SOME PROMI­NENT TECH ENTRE­PRE­NEURS — EVEN THOSE WHO ACKNOWL­EDGE IT WOULD ALSO DOLOT OF DAMAGE.A UN SPACE TREATY FROM 1972 HOLDS GOV­ERN­MENTS RESPON­SI­BLE FOR DAM­AGE CAUSED BYSPACE LAUNCH FROM THEIR TER­RI­TO­RIES; BUT TODAY SPACE IS COL­O­NIZED BY PRI­VATE ACTORS, CAPA­BLE OF BLITHE­LY TRY­ING WHAT­EV­ER THEY IMAG­INE.
