SUMMER OF SCI-FI: 2019! – www.MILANO411.com

Will the Sahara Desert countries be the next geo-political hotbed in the decades to come? We hope so for some reasons and not for others. These countries could reap massive wealth to take care of their problems. Yet, great powers may squeeze them out. Which would be sad and Africa would be “raped” for her resources once again and not for the benefit of her people. An interesting engineering premise. Ciao….

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:

In a world exhausted of fossil fuels, solar panels can provide a sustainable solution to our energy problems. But they also come with a couple of issues: for one, solar farms are massive, and they have to be set up somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight.

Now, if only we had a large mass of unused land that gets guaranteed sunlight everyday… Could we cover an entire desert in solar panels? Would that be enough to power the entire world? What kind of problems could we run into?
