While I think this is wonderful and am so pleased that Han won this wonderful prize and I do hope he reaches his dream of entering the world of aerospace, I would like to think that enterprise like this could now be altered to help the present world out. If using human waste can be used to power a space station, couldn't some enterprising individual work out a way of adapting this to provide some power here on earth.
I mean, there are endless supplies of fuel abounding in the vicinity of where people live and work and that is where the power is needed. I would love the bathroom of the future to become the power house or generator of the future of my home and then I could become totally power independent.
I am not being facetious. I think it is a wonderful idea and if it works it could really be the answer to so many problems of modern life.
