Yeah, it's supercool stuff.

It would be even better if this guy could pronounce alpha centauri

I’ve read some stuff on it but wasn’t aware it had turned up on Simon Whistler’s radar. That’s both gratifying and humbling. Funny thing about Starshot getting discussed is that it has SETI invoking the problems of detecting nano probes to address the Fermi paradox. All speculative but damn interesting.

Guess I’ll have to navigate to YouTube and see if his staff has stumbled across space elevators yet.
