I am referring to Elon Musk, who is in the process of adding lasers to his massive StarLink internet satellite constellation.
I understand thatthe official line is that this a technology that involves communications capability, and no ability to do damage, but he would say that, wouldn’t he
Let’s look at the check list:
- Trace of a vaguely German accent
- Eccentric megalomaniac
- Massive wealth
- Space lasers
- Expensive cars
- Legions of fanatical followers
White Persian cat
For the love of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, hide the Persian Cats!!!!
Of course, I know that the added lasers are to facilitate satellite to satellite communications, and that they are not a part of any weapons system ……… Yet.
But you have to admit that the Bond Villain aspects of Musk’s life are striking.
